Sculptor Creates Piece to Address Climate Change

Residents of Nunatsiavut were supposed to have seen a dog team heading down the coast of Labrador.

The lack of ice may leave people wondering how exactly that would be possible.

Well this dog team would have been perched on top of an iceberg.

Ap Verheggen is a sculptor from the Netherlands.

He says he had created a sculpture of a dog team to raise awareness on climate change.

The sculpture had been mounted on top of an iceberg outside of Uummannaq, Greenland.

Verheggen says he had hoped the sculpture would make its way down the Labrador coast atop the iceberg.

The progress of the iceberg was being tracked on the website

This morning, according to the website, the iceberg had apparently sunk.
