The bears are called United Buddy Bears, they are a series of painted, life size bear sculptures from Berlin, Germany.
The first bear was created by Kluas and Eva Herlitz from Germany.
The United Buddy Bears World Tour started in June – November 2002 in Berlin, Germany.
So far the bears have travelled 5 continents and Malaysia is the 23rd stop and 17th country on the global tour.
The message that the United Buddy Bears wanted to send
“Buddy Bears stands together "hand in hand", symbolizing the future vision of a peaceful world.
Each bear stands for the people of the different countries and their culture, yet not for political systems.”
