Marshall Fredericks was known for his animal sculpture and one animal he frequently represented was the bear. In Two Bears, a black bear and a brown bear sit together peacefully – something that would not occur in the wild. This work was sited specifically to welcome guests to the Lena Meijer Children's Garden
