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!
