Confucian Bear

I love statues. They mostly have lots of bumps and grooves that make them great climbing frames for small bears. This statue was in the foyer of our hotel in SingyPaw. It is of a man called Confucius. He was a famous Chinese philosopher who lived about 2,500 years ago. His teachings advocated family loyalty, ancestor worship and respect for elders. Of course, I totally respect my Oldies; I just don't take much notice of them when they try to stop me doing interesting things. Well, Confucius' statue was great to climb on. When Dad found me there he told me  "Confucius, he say: small bear who climbs wooden statue is blockhead". Somehow, I don't think Confucius ever said anything of the sort.
