Polar Bears Seen On The Thames
by Alan Harten
January 27, 2009
Office workers in central London were probably shocked yesterday to see a polar bear and its cub floating on a small iceberg down the River Thames, past such prominent buildings as the Houses of Parliament and tourist magnets like Tower Bridge.
The very lifelike sculpture, measuring 16 feet, was created by over a dozen artists who worked for over two months to produce it.
The project had the backing of the highly respected naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.
He said the intention of the piece of art was to draw attention to the plight of the melting ice caps and that these cuddly but highly dangerous mammals are heading rapidly towards extinction.
The floating exhibit will also be seen in many other locations around the country including Glasgow and Birmingham.
