Fred Bodin gives the Kodiak Bear Family sculpture a “bear hug” during a special preview on the grounds of the Chris Williams sculpture studio in Essex, MA. I am 6’1″ tall, and males of this species of bear grow to over 10′ tall when standing on their hind legs. The tree the bear family is climbing is 17′ high. The Kodiak bear is to scale! Kodiak, or brown bears, are named after an island of the same name in Alaska.

  1. Great one got the drop on it? – Fred – and what a great one by Chris Williams sculpture Essex, MA. These bears Kodiak are big for sure and on my first trip to Asia our first stop was Ancorage Alaska and in the terminal with a glass enclosure was one a big polar about 9 feet if I recall…that close. The paws and claws cover a mans head…I hear they added a Fourteen-foot grizzly in Airport also…Thanks Fred 🙂 Dave & Kim:-)
