Copper Bear Rustic Maine Wildlife Christmas Ornament
From the Maine Woods to your Christmas tree, this Bear ornament will amble right into everyone's heart and add a rustic, primitive touch to your holiday decorations.
Eco-friendly and sustainable, our woodland wildlife animal ornie is forged of repurposed solid copper, shear cut in our workshop, stone textured and fire kissed to a warm antiqued patina and multicolored variegated palette.
The bear shown in the photographs measures 2 inches high by 3 3/4 inches wide (from nose to back heel); with the attached hanger adding 1 1/2 inch to the overall height of the decoration. By special request, we will happily replicate this design in larger sizes. Please contact us in advance to arrange for a custom, bespoke ornament.
- Fun Facts:
- The Bear is the mascot of a number of American schools, including the Baylor University Bears in Texas and our own University of Maine Black Bears.
- California is known as "The Bear Republic."
- "Ursa Major" ( Great Bear) and "Ursa Minor" ( Lesser Bear) are the names of two constellations, both of them associated with various Greek myths and legends. The brightest stars in "Ursa Major" form "The Big Dipper."
- Legend has it that Davy Crockett, United States Senator and hero of the Alamo, could "stare down a bear" and killed his first one at the ripe old age of 3 years.
Individually handcrafted, each ornament will be unique in texture and coloration; all will be very much like the samples shown in the photographs.
