After a year under wraps, French artist Paulo Grangeon’s “1600 Pandas” installation exhibit has finally resurfaced in South Korea! The exhibit, now titled “1600 Pandas+”, has been rennovated to reflect the 17% increase in the worldwide panda population over the past 10 years, and features new papier mâché sculptures to match the current number of 1,864 pandas. A new addition to the South Korea exhibit will be the “Mom and Cub” statues, featuring a mother panda with her baby on its back!
