Sculptor Martin Davenhall Makes A Life-Size Polar Bear Sculpture Entirely Made Of Stone!

According to Martin Davenhall: “The bear itself is one of a kind. The very first to have been made in this way.

And difficult, especially in the winter as the stone is always cold and you need water to polish the pieces. The glue would take forever to dry and I would need to hold the piece in place for up to twenty minutes. Continue reading »

It isn’t surprised to see it given away to bears, because unlike some stuff that was rationed the condensed milk in USSR was available in unlimited amounts. Continue reading »
