Design Competition for professionals in the arts and design community

The “Buddy Bear” is a 2 m tall statue of glass-fibre reinforced plastic. The artists had the unique opportunity to transport a vibrant and colourful depiction of its roots in Germany (as country of origin) and the heritage and the specifics of the countries of the East Caribbean / Trinidad and Tobago (as the location where it will be displayed).

Once completed the bear will be on permanent display infront of the Embassy at St. Clair Ave corner Elisabeth St.
