This Grizzly Bear Headdress is carved in red cedar and painted in acrylic by Karver Everson from the K’ómoks and Kwaguł First Nation. It has been finished with copper, abalone, and cedar bark.
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.
