Polarbear & Seal

"Polarbear & Seal"
Polar bear & Seal, 6″ x 6″ x 3/8″, multiglazed, cone 6 oxidation.
The Polarbear is waiting for the seal at one of its breathing holes. The Inupiat (Eskimo) in my mother’s village of Point Hope, Alaska pretty much survived on seals and other sea mammals during the winters, much like the polar bear. The x-ray style used in the coastal areas sometimes shows the insides of the animals, like the ribs and stomach.
