Would love to have viewed this exhibition of â€œIced Flowersâ€ created by Japanese botanical artist, Makoto Azuma. The artist encases the exotic floral bouquets in massive blocks of ice and temporarily frees them from decay. This seemingly immortal state changes as the ice slowly melts and the flowers wilt and rot. He writes on his website:
â€œThis exhibition presents â€œICED FLOWERSâ€, a work to observe the changing life of flowers that are locked in ice. Flowers will show unique expressions that they do not display in everyday life, by placed under such a different environment.â€
