Buddy Bear

The Buddy Bear project was conceived in Berlin by Klaus and Eva Herlitz and Roman Stoblin (a bear was chosen as it is a symbol on the city's coat of arms). There are now similar statues in many cities worldwide, and they are meant to promote tolerance and peace amongst different religions and cultural groups. Each statue is hand-painted in a unique pattern.
