United Buddy Bear BRAZIL

Artist: Flauberto de Madeiros

The artist named his bear “Maria Bonita“ (the beautiful Mary). The Brazilian robber’s bride from the beginning of the twentieth century has become an iconic figure, characterised by beauty, ambition and untameable willpower.

Up to the present day, she continues to influence the perception of women in the Northeast of Brazil. Numerous dancers copying her attire and hairstyle can be spotted at folk festivals. In the same way, the work of the artist Flauberto is mysterious and filled with joy and beauty.

This bear has visited the following exhibition sites: Berlin 2002, Berlin 2003, Kitzbühel 2004, Hong Kong 2004, Istanbul 2004, Tokyo 2005, Seoul 2005 and Sydney 2006.
