'Polaris' Polar Bear Print

Manmade Art

This 'Polaris' Bear art print captures the spirit of one of Canada's most recognizable native species. Ursus maritimus (maritime bear) has moved among the ice and stars of the Arctic Ocean region for countless millennia. Featured on the face of our $2 'twoonie', the polar bear holds a special place in the hearts of Canadians, but due to climate change, it has been added to the vulnerable species.

This print was inspired by the maker's wife's stories of living in Canada's high north and my love of astronomy. The constellations of Ursa Major (Big Dipper) and Ursa Minor (Little Dipper) are highlighted on its body, with the North Star (Polaris)—the tip of the Little Dipper's handle—at the elbow of his front leg. This print makes a great collectable for collectors of Canadiana.
