This relief features iconic symbols celebrated by many cultures, the bear and the crescent moon. Fashioned after a traditional Native shield, the underlying bronze piece replicates stretched leather tied to red willow branches. The meaningful image in the center—the bear / moon icon—is cut from stainless steel.
DetailsCompared with the larger shields in this series, the Bear Shield’s relatively smaller size allows flexibility in placement.
