An unusual sculpture has been set up by local businessmen near one of the shopping malls of Bratsk in the Irkutsk Region.
      A stylish bear wearing a leather biker jacket is now greeting townsfolk. With one paw the bear is holding a Harley, and is waving to people with its other paw.
      Children and newly-married couples have already started to take pictures near the unusual monument.
      Krasnoyarsk sculptor Andrey Koshelev worked on the monument for 22 days in autumn. Bratsk dwellers observed the process of its creation. The monument weighs 2 tons, the bear is 2.7 m tall and the motorbike is 2.5 m long.
