This is one of the main “exhibits” at the airport in Doha Qatar. Big Yellow Bear.
Anyone know what he is doing there?
According to the Internet and personal speculation there are several possibilities:
1-Remind travelers of childhood or precious things from home
2-Humanize the airport experience
3-Entice travelers to make purchases in the duty-free hall
4-Part of a broader trend over the past decade in which the international art world has been establishing a firm presence in wealthy Middle East Gulf states cities, like Doha
5-Rich oil sheiks have more money than they know what to do with
Add one more internet suggestion:
6-The airport is being used to store the 30-ton artwork purchased by a member of the royal family
hehe, yes, all could be the good reasons
It’s rather odd and I have no idea why it’s there but I like the suggestions above! The picture made me smile so in real life I would have found the bear quite amusing to come across. 🙂
It’s perhaps a symbol of the aitport
