Ice Bear

Another photo from my first research trip to Iceland. This is a real polar bear and I am genuinely in shock and awe at the size of the beast. The manager of gorgeous Hotel Ranga (in whose lobby the bear snarls) assures me that it is not by a long way the biggest. Paws like dinner plates! I'm five feet five inches tall and it wasn't on a plinth. Getting this close meant that I could describe the varied colours in the fur for a scene where ... Well. wait and see.

Tease, tease! Good post! Well, seems it might have been the inspiration for our 'Ice Bear' hanging on the wall in the Alps. There is a similar, although from distant memory, smaller example in the airport terminal at Anchorage, Alaska.
