Bears have been powerful symbols for man for thousands of years, so bear art has long traditions. Bears were worshipped in early Russia, Scandinavia, America and China. Korean people identify the bear as their ancestor and symbolic animal. Our bear art is inspired by rare vintage illustrations from the period 1600 to 1920. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight 300gsm German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
