Walk with a Bear

This guy was fashioned from a 4' branch I found while clearing brush in the back yard one long day ago. I stripped the foliage and left it to dry behind the house for two years. It cracked and warped in time, which is the charm of using unmilled wood, and wood filler was rubbed in the crevices before sanding. The head is fashioned from a scrap bit of yellow pine, glued and clamped, then painted in a pseudo-Haida style. Visit for more to do with Haida arts and lore.
