UNITED BUDDY BEARS SHOW - Hong Kong 2004

expand Artist: Martin Heinig
collapse interpretation
Ursus Amicus
My figure stretches its front legs up to the sky being in high spirits, terrible despair or showing a serious threatening gesture.
Its waist is red and shows 12 buttons: all portraits of old bank notes from East and West Germany, forgotten already by many, but still important witnesses of a united Germany. It seems to tell us with a wink that the saying "Money makes the world go round!" is as valid in the present as it was in the past.
Its abdomen is painted in gold: difficult to say whether he is disappearing from golden times or walking towards them. This is left to the observer.
