Künstbär (Art Bear)

My Houston friends will remember art cows scattered about the city a few summers ago. Sponsoring organizations hired artists to decorate cows in various themes. St. Gallen’s legend about the hermit St. Gallen encountering a bear has this Swiss town adopting the bear as its mascot. Decorated bears are popping up all over town with the spring flowers. Here is one of my favorites, a punk bear. I laughed at the tail codpiece and then my husband pointed out whose picture graced this bear’s behind - W - not popular here! K Q:-)
