Beniamino "Benny" Bufano

A total of 13 walkers and three of their four-legged friends had a tour of Crocker Park, taking time

for a photo op with the city's only outdoor art a granite statue of a mother bear and her two cubs

made by famous San Francisco Italian-American sculptor, Beniamino "Benny" Bufano. He is

perhaps best known for his large-scale monuments that represent peace.

His modernist work often features smoothly rounded animals and relatively simple shapes, and

the bear statue in Crocker Park is an excellent example of his style.
