A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art!
A great North American Grizzly Bear, bellowing fearsomely! The design by Canadian wildlife transports the viewer to one of the many river valleys of western Canada, where tree-covered mountains and glacial peaks form a serene backdrop for a scene rife with intensity and tension. Two male grizzly bears are engaged in a fearsome display of strength in the cold water. With a wrestler’s prowess, each bear uses the sparring skills honed through the playful scrapping of their youth; but this is no game: the drive to reproduce is strong, and our two bears are locked in a fierce battle for the opportunity to mate with a receptive female. Attempting an aggressive display of dominance, the bear on the left side of the image field stands higher than the bear on the right; both are erect on their hind legs, freeing their fore paws to push upon the opponent with the entirety of their immense weight. They will lock their open jaws together in the struggle for dominance, each bear hoping to emerge as the victor. This tension-filled, side-profile portrait is rendered with meticulous engraving; advanced techniques capture the design’s finer details by adding beautiful dimension to the elements, from the bears’ long fur to their aggressive body language and expressions, even capturing the excess saliva that is produced by the bears in their agitated state.

The Fearsome Grizzly Bear
It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic grizzly in the wild! The fearsome grizzly bear is probably the most dangerous land mammal in North America. These massive and powerful animals can weigh up to 1,500 pounds and stand up to 8 feet tall on their hind legs, yet are capable of running at speeds up to 35 miles per hour! Perhaps best known as salmon hunters during the spawning season, grizzlies are opportunistic omnivores, eating almost anything in season, from fruits, nuts, honey and berries, to insects, grubs and small mammals, to much larger prey. As such they can be very dangerous to humans, especially when startled or when defending their young. One bite from a grizzly bear can crush a person's skull, so powerful are its jaws. Although they were held in high esteem for eons by Native Americans because of their spirits, grizzlies have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly because of simple fear.
