Bear by Tim Hawkinson
Created by Tim Hawkinson, this giant granite statue goes by the name "Bear." The 2005 work of art is constructed of 8 giant boulders, all found locally and pieced together to form Hawkinson's vision. The bear is almost 24-feet high and weighs 180 tons! Still, the rocky and rugged sculpture has a cuddly look to it, amazingly. It sits invitingly in the midst of Warren College, a piece in the Stuart Collection at UC San Diego.
