Old Man of The Forest: Bear Elder

By Herbert Him, Sr.

Animal: Bear, Material: Picasso Marble
This offering is sold.

Herbert Him, Sr. is a wonderful carver of Bears depicting their powerful spirit in fetish form. The difference between the Indigenous view of bears and that of mainstream society is that bears are respected as family, sentient beings who have a range of emotions congruent with those of humans. Emerging from his forest home, an elder bear has mighty clawed paws and wisdom-filled turquoise eyes. He will teach you if you will listen. A heartline or breath path is inlaid from turquoise. Bears admonish us to respect nature, ourselves and others. About 3 1/2" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1 5/8" tall, from Picasso marble.
