Maïté´s Bears are back!

Maìté´s Polar Bears are back on Calluna Square in Dieren. Maïté created the beloved sculptures in 1986 on commission by the municipality. Children and adults loved the bronze animals, which were often climbed upon and photographed.

The sculptures were removed for a while due to the radical redesign of the shopping center, which if all goes well will be completed this month. The bears returned last week and have been given a new base. Maïté’s daughter Mathilde took some beautiful pictures.
