Polar Bears at Chinook Centre
A unique Christmas decor theme was created for Chinook Centre inspired by the scale and pristine beauty of the Great White Polar Bear. An homage was made to this vulnerable species of the Arctic Circle via a representation of a family of oversized bears composed of two adult bears and two cubs. The standing bear measures 25 ½' (almost 8 metres) and the walking bear 12 ½' (almost 4 meters). Both weight 1250 lbs (570 kg). They are fabricated from a steel framework, coated EPS foam and a textured paint finish to mimic sparkling snow.
