bear bums

Remember the post from last week about the orange bear sculptures that sit outside one of Vancouver's Skytrain stations? (see post here for a refresher). Well, thanks to Kristen from Knotted Nest for letting me know about the other half of the sculpture that sits in the Toronto Sculpture Garden! How cool that the bears enter one wall on the other side of the country and come out another wall out here on the west coast. Seeing these orange kraft dinner colored bear bums still bring a "cheesy" smile to my face.

Perhaps there is a cosmic "worm hole" that connects that specific spot in Toronto with your spot in Vancouver? But really it is way clever and so creative...even the cheesy orange is imaginative.
Thanks for giving us the other END of the story. :D
