A Gigantic Teddy Bear
Hamad International Airport houses a gigantic 20-ton, 23-ft teddy bear with its head stuck inside an equally gargantuan lamp. The teddy is the largest of the only three in the world created by Swiss artist Urs Fischer. This bright yellow teddy made out of cast bronze, sits in the middle of the foyer of the airport and its world-class duty-free hall. This is the same teddy that used to be displayed in front of the Seagram Building on New York’s Park Avenue, but was bought by a member of Qatari royal family for almost $ 7 million. Whether people love it or hate it, this teddy bear is probably the most photographed item in the whole airport.
