Cosmic ice sculptures

Apparently, this image is making the rounds on the web as “Via Hubble: The cosmic ice sculptures of the Carina Nebula. Scientists are still trying to explain the beautiful spires.” The truth, as explained in the link, is that it is a beautiful piece of photo art by Adam Ferriss, based on a manipulated astronomy picture that has nothing to do with either the Hubble telescope or the Carina Nebula. All rights retained by the artist, as usual.
