Boris the Bear, chilling out in Sloane Square

Posted at 10:00 am, January 15, 2013 in Fun London

If you go down to Sloane Square today you’re sure of a big surprise……

A great big 12ft, 700kg bronze surprise who goes by the name ‘Boris’. Created by artist Adam Binder, this sculpture of a polar bear will be chilling out (sorry) in Sloane Square for 28 days. Its aim is to draw attention to the face that these animals are facing extinction due to the effects global warming is having on their habitats.

They are so hot right now, what with being a staple on fair isle Christmas jumpers, and the stars of the most recent animated Coca-Cola advert, at this rate they could be the new owl. Also, If you are anywhere near a window, Twitter or Facebook account you’ll know that it has started snowing. What could be better than seeing a polar bear in the snow? Jude Brosnan
