WHOO!!! Go BC! :) (Smile) (local pride) I love BC First Nations art; there's a gallery in Vancouver with a lot of native sculpture and painting. And a museum in the capital that we always used to go to that had all sorts of scary masks, and a real live fake longhouse that we could actually go in! And it was really creepy because you could hear guys doing their drumming and chanting, but there was no-one there...

Anyway, I love this picture. Not only is the painting well executed, but I love the posing. The bear just looks like he's busy trying to concentrate on something that is taking him a bit of effort to do. You can see it in his face and in his hunched-over shoulders. +fav

*points* It's me! Bored out of my mind waiting for LOTR to start!

Ok, maybe not. Still...uh...lefties rule!

Amazing pic. The fur is very realistic, as is the shading. Wow. Cool :) (Smile)

P.S. the design on the hand is a bear on top of a salmon... i didn't think about this when i posted it, but i more-or-less 'paraphrased' it off of a poster i've got... credit should technically go to the poster artist... i don't have it in front of me, but i'll ammend that when i get home...

Ooh, this is very nice.. I love the style that it's done in, and all of the attention to detail in the bear's fur is a really nice touch.

Not sure about polar bears being left handed, but this one does seem to be. ;) (Wink)
