      I am looking for something special in Providence.

      Providence Sep 15, 2012 at 3:02 AM

      Hi there

      I live in a town called Wroclaw in Poland. I've found something what could be common to our cities. We have a fountain called "Bear Fountain", that was made by a German sculpor Moritz Geyger in 1904. Wroclaw was German and its name was Breslau at that time. Geyger made a copy of the Bear and the copy should be now somewhere in the Brown University in Providence. The Bear sculpture in Providence has a label where you can probably read that the sculpture was made by Geyger and it is a copy of Breslau Bear or something like that.
      If you have time could you check it for me. Thank you.

      Please read my review about it too:
