This large Bear Mask is carved in red cedar and painted by Bill Henderson from the Kwakwaka´wakw or Kwakiutl Nation. The mask is carved in red cedar and features cedar bark, acrylic paint, and two carved paws left and right of the head. 

The Bear Symbol represents strength, family, vitality courage and health. The bear is thoughtful and independent, with little need for fellowship. The bear is also self-contained and strong-willed in nature. A Bear is of great support and comfort to those who crave human company simply for personal reassurance rather than for the simple pleasure of being with friends. He makes lonely periods of life far easier.
