Mysterious, powerful and nurturing of their young, bears natural characteristics (and the many, colorful, human beliefs associated with them) have inspired creation of bear images in wood, stone, ink, glass, bronze, and more. This book showcases of the results and concisely conveys a wealth of information about the significance of bears within diverse cultures, over time.

Special attention is given to the history of carved, wooden, bear images and the carvers who made them, topics that correct a common misunderstanding and trace how tourism and bear images combined to showcase the controversial and varying demands of art and commerce. One begins to see how bears, unwittingly, have evoked human beliefs that gave rise to both bear worship and bear genocide.
