It's playtime with these sets of Bear figurines from Riera Studios in Habana, Cuba. These hand-carved and painted one-of-a-kind bears were made to promote the visibility of bears within the LGBTQAI+ community.

 

From Rirera: Bear culture remains an important way of challenging monolithic notions of what it means to be a gay man as well as challenging body types, behaviors, and interests that gay men - or, for that matter, anyone - are supposed to find desirable. 

 

Portions of the proceeds went towards LGBTAIQ+ organizations in Cuba.

 

PRODUCT INFO:

  • Each set of bears comes with two figurines in its original packaging.
  • Dimensions of figurine: H 3.25" x 1.25" at widest

 

More about Riera Studio:

 

RIERA STUDIO is an art space for exhibitions, reflection and cultural dialogue that recognizes and studies the different dynamics and development of art made outside the mainstream norms, its relationship with society, and the social processes that inspire its creators. Our interest is focused on the promotion of a form of art produced by vulnerable social groups and others who develop their creative work away from established official arts institutions or mainstream art platforms. These artists create in response to a strong intrinsic motivation and often work with non-conventional materials and techniques. Much of this singular art reflects extreme mental states, very individual idiosyncrasies or extravagant worlds of fantasy.

In 1902 the building we now call Jailbreak was erected as the first southeast Police Department, built on land that belongs to the Chinook, Cowlitz, and Clackamas tribes. Honoring the land we live on and the accuracy of history matters, acknowledgment matters, showing respect is required. 🌎 If you are interested in learning more about the tribes and land you have built your life on, and you would like to honor the people who came before you, the Native Land app is free, and owned and operated by the Indigenous non profit Native Land Digital.
