The “1,600 Pandas World Tour” was first launched in 2008 by the WWF and acclaimed French artist Paulo Grangeon crafted 1,600 pandas – to mark the number of pandas left in the wild at the time – from paper mache. The pandas were then exhibited in some 100 locations in different countries such as France, Italy, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia and South Korea.
