Long Description:
This was one of 61 bears created by various artists as a unique signature project for CancerCare Manitoba.

This design plays on the Inuit identity of Nanook, given to the polar bear, and the Inukshuk, a directional guide for a safe journey that Inuit peoples create out of stacking stones. These primitive stone images, supporting each other, reflect the way each of us depends on one another and a spirit of co-operation. (visit link)
