Thanks for your kind words! This statue is no more then a foot tall, and yes it might be from that same place you visited!
I was really surprised to hear what my parents paid for this art... i think the sculpure was purchased for like a $1000! My dad loves polar bears...LOL
Perhaps us Boston / MA folk can organize an official Mu-43 meetup sometime this summer when it warms up!
I'm actually looking to attend some photo / video meet groups through meetup.com
I think it would be very cool to have a group of photographers from different skill levels all filming together, and sharing insights. This could help people take their photos to the next level!
