More “Bear” Bellies from around the world

Today I will feature only “bear” bellies which did not have to suffer the consequences of drinking too much beer. These 2 meter high Buddy Bears have been cast from a mold and made out of ceramic.  They are each individually grated up and sent around the Earth to be exhibited in different locations in order to promote world peace.  They have taken up residence in Astana, Kazakhstan until end of July.  The most details done by each artist seems to focus on the belly but other artists use the WHOLE bear to promote something about their country that typically characterizes it.
