Thank you for your comments !
I wanted to show an original oxymoron, but I had no idea it was difficult to get the contradiction between cube and star-shaped...
Let's hope my next submission will have better results !

a really good oxymoron :-) there is somthing missing in the photo, maybe some kind of blue or cold color would have given more an icy look to the star...

Not seeing that as an oxymoron.

Cold Heat
Hot Ice

Might have been better. :)
