Meet Melting Woman: a daylong festival with a “well endowed” 3-foot woman carved out of a 300-pound block of ice. The lady will preside over hula hoopers, face paint, faux fur and DJ’s at Battery Harris bar, and after she melts a ceremony will honor her demise. “In the same way they burn a man at Burning Man, our woman will be melted by the end of the day,” co-organizer Stephanie Bucko said of the armless sculpture replacing Burning Man’s wooden effigy that’s lit up at the end of the week-long event. “It turns out limbs are really expensive because you have to buy separate blocks of ice.”
The frozen lady may lack extremities, but her caretakers promise to adorn her in leis and other accessories — and they urge revelers to come as decorated as humanly possible.
Oh yeah, Burning Man happened too and here are the pictures.
