Without keeping any exact statistics, I dare say that the United States must be the nation where I have the most blogging buddies.
USA no doubt also has the most unmistakable Buddy Bear in the whole BB exhibition. I don’t think any further introduction of the inspiration for this bear is needed.
The name of the artist is Bill C. Ray. Looking him up, I find that he was born in Alaska, but lives in Berlin, Germany. You can see more of his work here.
In the Buddy Bears exhibition, USA is surrounded by
Uruguay (South America)
Uzbekistan (Central Asia)
Artist: Miu Mau
”The Uzbek bear is a woman called Banu, which means "respectable woman" or "Grand Lady". She is a work of art and a lucky charm at the same time, because it's traditional in Uzbekistan that all the jewellery and works of art in a house also function as protective charms.”
I don’t think I know any bloggers from those countries, but as there are more bears than there are days in December, I thought I might include a couple of “extras” now and then…
