"Arnott’s Teddy Bear Biscuit" is Australia's most famous bear: sand-coloured and dry.

The Buddy Bear for Australia is called "Hugo." His skin is a reflection of the colour and texture of the "outback." Light and shadow play with him, make him come alive, the sun penetrates his surface with warmth.
