United Buddy Bears At Pavilion KL
I was last month for a short trip in KL, got to Pavilion and saw The United Buddy Bears exhibition in front of Pavilion about 143 of them.
Under this motto, the United Buddy Bears promote living together in peace and harmony on their global tour. About 143 Buddy Bears represent as many countries recognised by the UN. Since the first exhibition in Berlin in 2002, more than 25 million visitors world wide have been able to admire the United Buddy Bears.
The Buddy Bears stand together "hand in hand", symbolising the future vision of a peaceful world. Each bear stands for the people of the different countries and their culture, yet not for political system.
Each Buddy Bears shows the individual design created by different artists on behalf of their native countries. The international artists' different styles are joined together in one work of art, spreading zest of life. The diverse design of the Buddy Bears-always typical for the respective countries-enables the visitors to experience a journey around the globe.
The Malaysian United Bear was painted by our very own local artist A. Rahim Muda.
The United Buddy Bears exhibition tour end on 15 Feb 2012.
