Carmen Goertzen from the Haida Nation carved this Haida Bear Ring in sterling silver. The design depicts a frontal view as well as a split design of the bear with the front and back legs on the sides.
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.
