Ursus Americanus Kermodei is a unique subspecies of the black bear. Ma'a Grandmother Spirit Bear is an icon in her 17 plus years. She brought a special joy to us each day she graced our presence. The last day in the Great Bear Rainforest Ma'a sat down on a river rock in the middle of the narrow river. She looked around and put her head in her paws and went to sleep in front of our group. It was very moving! This painting is in honor of her beautiful Kermode soul.
