Great decor item -- more beautiful in person than in the photo
Noz from San Francisco, CA– Verified Buyer
Purchased the Ursa the Bear wood figurine for a client's shelves, and the quality and color of the wood is much warmer and more natural-looking than the product photo! The joints are elastic so you can move the bear's legs/head a bit, but ideally it would just sit on a coffee table or a shelf and look fantastic. It feels larger than the dimensions listed (but the dimensions are accurate), so it feels like a good value for its quality, heft, and awesome design.

Like Hanno the Gorilla, Ursa is a pretty awesome piece of design, expressive and playful. It's fun for kids and adults, and in spite of its high price tag, it is the kind of object that can be displayed for years, even decades. Small changes in position create a whole new expression. And it's size makes it even more impressive!

Just as pictured. My son loves it. Tis is the kind of toy that you do not mind your kids leaving on the coffee table!
