The polar bear is a fascinating subject for collectors. Their attraction to these animals as symbols seems to originate from the characteristics associated with them, such as strength, stoicism, courage and dignity. Although many artists attempt to carve the impressive animal, only the best artists are able to bring these qualities to life.
