Beach bear

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Artist James Kenny has cre­ated 3D print mod­els of the ‘Beach Bear’ sculp­ture lo­cated at the seafront in Grey­stones.

Kenny has done so with the per­mis­sion of sculp­tor Pa­trick O’Reilly.

The bear was do­nated by the Dwyer fam­ily in mem­ory of their late daugh­ter Caro­line Dwyer-Hickey.

Caro­line bat­tled can­cer for nine years be­fore her death in 2013. She worked as a teacher in Dublin. Her fam­ily wished to com­mem­o­rate her with a lively sculp­ture which the chil­dren of the town in par­tic­u­lar would en­joy.

To get your hands on one of the repli­cated sculp­tures, find James on Face­book and send him a mes­sage.
