Beautiful hand carved 

HAPPY BEAR sculpture by First Nations artist Doug Horne, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation

This piece is really gorgeous, Doug called it the "happy Bear' - with it's tongue showing and his paws in front of him, really cute. Please have a close look at the images - the piece is fully knife finished. you can clearly see how much work went into it. And as always in Doug's pieces of art, he just catches the expression, still keeping to his clean lines and elegant style of carving. 

This piece has been oiled, it just doesn't need any paint, it's adorable.

Measurements: 17' x 5' x 4" (43.5 x 12.5 x 10 cm)

Meaning: The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest.

Note: overseas shipping available, costs will be added at check-out.
