United Buddy Bears Exhibition at The Admiralty

We were on our way to The Admiralty in Saint Petersburg during our Russia trip when we chanced across the United Buddy Bears exhibition near the pond. The exhibition is held from 21 Jun 2012 to 5 Aug 2012 and it aims to promote living together in peace and harmony on their global tour. Around 140 Buddy Bears (each 2 m tall) represent as many countries recognised by the United Nations. Since the first exhibition in Berlin in 2002, more than 25 million visitors world-wide have been able to admire the United Buddy Bears. 

Each Buddy Bear 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 for life. The diverse design of the Buddy Bears – always typical for the respective countries – enables the visitors to experience a journey around the globe. Below are just some of the pictures of the buddy bears shown in the exhibition.

In case you're wondering, The Admiralty looks like it's under renovation so we did not go in. :)
