Umka & Kera for World Wildlife Fund Project


World Wildlife Fund, Umka 2oo9.

World Wildlife Fund, Kera 2oo9.

Umka, is the name for polar bear in the Chukchi language. Hand-polished, the polar bear sculpture was cut from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminium. Designed by Scott Wilson and fabricated by MD, Umka captured the essence of polar bear through minimalist abstraction.

Kera, on the other hand is a polished chrome Rhino for World Wildlife Fund 2oo8, another design by Wilson in conjunction with Kohler. Kera was in an online auction last year, by Scott Wilson, for Faces in the Wild.
