THE ART OF TOLERANCE – AN IDEA ON ITS TOUR AROUND THE WORLD!
Under this motto, the UNITED BUDDY BEARS 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 40 million visitors world-wide have been able to admire the United Buddy Bears.
Art and Culture: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.
Palestine Buddy Bear – Large
I, the bear, am an ambassador for my country Palestine – a country with an ancient culture. I am wearing the costume of my people, a nation of olive trees. I am telling you about Palestinian folklore. The embroideries of the women, our proud women. For centuries, they have been passed on over the generations and have been preserved to the present day, certainly to the delight of many future generations.
Our roots are our future. I joined the circle of “United Buddy Bears“ myself. Together, we all sing a song against poverty and for peace, freedom and human rights in our world.
