In Riga, one quite often encounters beavers, particularly along the embankment. Therefore, the proposal for the bench is a cast mattress on which a sleeping beaver lies, because it’s almost like a pet for us.

Position 1: canal edge in Kronvalda Park (between the National Theatre and LU Biology Faculty). Materials: Mattress cast in concrete that can be heated. Alternative version: made of wood. Figure of beaver cast in bronze.
