Bear, 2007

Nickel silver/aluminum, ca. 182 × 90 × 90 cm

Based on model sketches, a work-piece made of lime wood was created, which Anne Chu then worked on with woodcarving knives and rasps. The bear figure was cast in nickel silver, a copper alloy. The metal surface of the sculpture is bewildering due to its wood texture. A head of the bear made of aluminum was added later.
