Description

Soapstone Carving-Dancing Bear

 For thousands of years, the polar bear has been a key figure in the material, spiritual, and cultural life of circumpolar peoples, and polar bears remain important in their cultures.  They are the largest land carnivore, but they spend most of their time in the ocean and on sea ice.  They are now an endangered species because of climate change.

Why it is interesting:  Polar Bears live only within the Arctic Circle and unlike other bears have a white coat.  They are considered spiritually powerful and similar to people.
