Julian Bickesteth has been running a very well oiled machine in Sydney. The Ice Bear has arrived in fine order having travelled by ship via Singapore… it now lives in its natural habitat in a freezer.
But as with projects of this complexity and distance Julians team very wisely decided that because of tight time frames both logistically and on the funding front we would postpone the carve until April 17th… ie during Earth Week. Easter in Sydney will be wonderful and the time frame perfect for Ice Bear to work its magic.
I hope that by having a bear in Australia we will be able to cruise it through the Far East… as I would hope the bear in Canada might do the Americas and the one in UK Europe… Let’s keep the message flowing through sculpture.
