Adorable bear cub by Matt Buckley - part of the EDGE collection of contemporary sculpture. Native to North America, bears are an iconic symbol of the wild. These awe-inspiring giants tend to be solitary animals - with the exception of females and their cubs - but when they do congregate it can be a dramatic sight, for example certain Alaskan rivers when the salmon run upstream for summer spawning. In this season, dozens of bears may gather to feast on the fish, craving fats that will sustain them through the long winter ahead. Having shared territory with Native American Indians for centuries, bears is widely revered for their strength and many tribes feel a strong spiritual connection to these magnificent creatures. This irresistible baby bear by master sculpture Matt Buckley would make the perfect gift for a loved one.
