To many the Giant Panda is instantly recognizable for its large, distinctive black patches around the eyes and ears, and its presence as a global symbol for conservation. This native of central-western and south western China is considered the world's most endangered bear species, with only 1,600 pandas remaining in the world, due to low birth rates, poaching and a constant decline in the bamboo forests that provide the panda with its food. "The future of this animal remains uncertain, "Wyland says. "But it remains a top priority among conservationists who want to see to it that it will be here for future generations. For me, as an artist, this sculpture represents the panda in its classic sitting position doing what it does virtually its entire life "eating."
