Is there a good trick to get polygon of Antarctica as continent (with glaciers) from OSM? I cannot find any common tag or relation for this, this seems to be set of glaciers and islands and coastline. The admin area border (from is nice too, but it is significantly smaller than the continent in OSM.

I'd think about the best you can do is a bounding box min_lat="-90" min_lon="-180" max_lat="-60" max_lon="180". Also read imagico's blog and related articles
