United Buddy Bears World Tour, Pavillion, KL

The United Buddy Bears, which aimed to spread the message of tolerance and international understanding in the name of world peace and also to raise fund for children in need worldwide, was first launched in Berlin, Germany in 2002. Since then, it has traveled to more than 15 countries, and Malaysia is the first Southeast Asian country to be chosen for its tour. 142 life size bears sculptures, which represented the cultures and heritage of the different countries, will be exhibited at the foyer of the shopping mall, Pavillion until Feb 15, 2012. Among them is the Malaysia Bear, painted by renowned Malaysian artist Imuda, which was unveiled at the launching of the exhibition by Kuala Lumpur Mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail. Standing at 2m high with their arms lifted, each of them reflects their nation’s own culture, history, traditions and characteristics painted by an artist from that country. With the theme "The Art of Tolerance", the United Buddy Bears World Tour hoped to raise fund with the auctioning of the bears and  the funds collected would be channeled to the various children aid in Malaysia. Here are some of the photos from a good facebook friend of mine...Carlos Rodrigo. Thank you very much Carlos! Enjoy viewing...
