Travel tip, do not go up the funicular from the river to the palace in Budapest, its a tourist trap, and a very expensive one. Go one stop down the tram railway and ride the escalator in the palace gardens behind the ladies gate. The gardens are beautiful; the entrance buildings are stunning. Right by the escalator is a little water spout, a bear in the Bavarian (I think) style. The more you look the better he gets, the modelling is stunning. These photos should be enough for any half decent carver to develop a pattern from.
