One viewer said:
"The bear of the Russian Federation is covered with a tangle of wide ribbons, stripes, disconnected lines.
The Buddy Bear seems to be streak of strands, which start somewhere and end somewhere on the figure. Everything is - like the structure of the Russian Federation - not yet completed. A lot is still bridged, but the main-features of the system can be recognised.
Looking at the bear from some distance, one can also think of a picture taken of the Russian Federation out of space by night: big streets, illuminated cities, airports, runways etc."
