    Red-pawed Black Bear


    The black bear often appears in the art of the traditional territories of the Haida nation, and Haida artist Eric Parnell often portrays them in his distinctive, precise work. This bear is standing upright, its teeth bared, its red forepaws ready to grasp food, its sturdy red feet and heavy body firmly planted. Though the black bear can be fierce, it also is very used to people (sometimes too familiar in urban settings, as it heads for campgrounds or garbage cans, which can lead to its removal or destruction). This painting somehow has a kind of winsome quality, even a kind of charm, as one thinks of the close, if sometimes ambivalent relationship between the black bear and humans. Eric uses acrylic paints, and this is on high quality, 140 pound, acid-free art paper. It frames very easily and shows very well indeed in any setting. V 15” x H 11. 40 grams.
