This original design of a Bear is based on a totem ink sketch (shown above) of the Tulalip Tribes of Washington State.
The Bear is
representative of introspection, strength, leadership, learned
humility, motherhood, and teaching, and is also frequently mentioned
as "first helper" in creation/emergence stories. The bear embodies
self-observation, because every winter, it retires to a cave to
reflect on the events of the past year. It enters into the great
silence, the big empty, to find the answers to all questions.
Many people also choose the path of silence and solitude to find
themselves. This is an opportunity to obtain answers, since all
answers can be found within ourselves. Self-observation is necessary
to recognize one's wishes. The power of the bear embraces this
receiving, female energy. The bear withdraws into a dream world
every winter in the search for answers and is reborn every spring.
The bear teaches us how important it is to recognize the right time
to take a step back from the noisy world around us and from our
thoughts. For it is in silence that we can hear the voice of the
higher self that knows the answers to all questions and holds the
solution to all problems. Use the power of the bear to realize your
goals. Bear is also known as a creature of the "Dream-time".
An extremely unique, highly
collectible, One-Of-A-Kind artwork.
