This was another in the "panda dressed up as other animals" theme, but in this case it was several different animals instead of just one. As you might expect, the National Zoo was the place to find this bear during the PandaMania exhibition. According to the artist, "I used my panda-like replica to represent some of the other animals that children experience while visiting the zoo. ... Texture and color shows the difference of each animal skin included in the design."
