The Berlin Bears

Carla Ryan, from Berlin, writes:

“At the moment there is an exhibition in Berlin called the United Buddy Bears. Artists from all around the world have been given the chance to represent their country by designing and decorating one of the famous Berlin bears. While countries like Cuba and Namibia took the opportunity to turn their pieces into a work of art, or Canada using a cool concept of pixelating their bear (above), our Irish artist Shaun Dolan decided to play it safe and perpetuate the typical Irish stereotype.All that’s missing is a pint of Guinness in the bear’s hand. The general reaction from people passing by was “haha look at Ireland”

Oh come on.

It can’t be that bad?

Ah.
