The Bears

There are bears in the center of Hengelo…

5 giant plastic bronze bears! Apparently, it’s an (expensive) artwork that some people love and others hate.

Lars and I thought it was funny, but we wondered whether there is any connection between bears and the town of Hengelo. Anyway, I had fun photographing them!

What do you think? Is this art or not? Do you like this or not?

    How can you have plastic bronze bears? If they are bronze I am amazed at the personality coming through the metal. From an artistic standpoint they are charming though the execution is not great – whether plastic or bronze.

      I don’t know how they made them, but just like you, I think they look so charming…


Let us know what you think!
