This piece is a plus one to my Alaska Wilderness Importance series. My series currently consists of a moose, an eagle and a bear. My next add-ons will include a king crab, king salmon, a wolf, and a caribou.
Now, there’s something specific that I wish to point out about this series, so let’s start with some questions; why is the bear standing instead of its natural down position? Why this design? Why the transparency of the bear? Why do we only see the world through the bear? Does the bear seem worried? And why isn’t there very many trees? I took a lot of thought into this piece as I went through it. This piece is supposed to resemble the wildlife and how important nature is to them (and the rest of the world). In the bear’s perspective, nature is the most important thing ever since the dawn of their existence. The bear is noticing a change in the world. It’s where they eat, sleep, roam, and live. It’s their home, and they share it with every other creature in the biome. Without the bear (wildlife…), what would make nature special? Think about it…
