Mat Weight Bear

Delightfully naturalistic, this bear sculpture has been carefully replicated to honor the characteristic details of the two Mat Bear Weights showcased in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s Early Italian Room. The weights are a part of the special exhibition Common Threads: Weaving Stories Across Time (October 4, 2018 -January 13, 2019).

This Mat Bear Weight sculpture captures the patina, mottled coloring, and details of the original, including its 6 ⅛ inch height. Used as a weight or a decorative object, this resin bear sculpture will continue its time-honored tradition of being a favored possession, sure to demonstrate its unique utility and aesthetic.
