The Quantum of the Seas is Royal Caribbean’s latest cruise ship and it exited the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Germany with a 30-foot-tall magenta polar bear featured on top deck. This art piece is part of Royal Caribbean’s plan of featuring an art collection worth $5.2 million and one of a few thousand pieces around the ship.
Quantum of the Seas will be a ship showcasing what makes life worth living, and this is appropriately what the theme of this art collection is following. There will be artwork from a number of artists including Lawrence Argent, Soo Sunny Park, and Paul Villinski.

Royal Caribbean’s polar bear art piece might be larger than life, but it came with a number of challenges during the construction and design process. The artist discusses what these challenges were during the video and also touches on the rewards for building a piece with such impact.
