Our Bear is still bare. Help us create a unique bear skin for our Sydney Buddy Bear! We are looking for artists to paint our Buddy Bear with their original design. The bear is the official symbol of Germany’s capital, Berlin, and the Buddy Bear is a sculpture of a bear with open arms, symbolising friendship, tolerance and understanding between people of various cultures and religions. More than 140 Buddy Bears have been created by artists so far, connecting places from all over the world with Berlin.
