Representing strength and confidence, the bear features prominently in many cultures around the world. This carving captures the beauty and calmness of the bear as if it is walking through its natural habitat. Place your bear as you see fit on its separate polished cherry base--a one-of-a-kind art piece.
The cherry base is approximately 6" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/4" and the black walnut bear is 4 1/2" long x 3 1/4" tall.
Award-winning artist and master carver Marc Degagne, lived for more than 30 years on his family farm, at the northern tip of Algonquin Park, in Ontario, Canada. He would often steal away into the woods to carve beavers, and other woodland creatures that surrounded him. Completely self taught, and now many years later, Marc has won many awards for his design and artistry and has carved commissioned sculptures for churches and shrines. In tune with the sites and sounds of grey timber wolves, birds, owls, turtles and bears, Degagne captures their spirits in beautiful woods.
