Celtic Symbols - Bear

I made this bear because I've always liked bears and what they represent, but I had a hard time finding one that was neither too cute nor too ferocious. They symbolize strength, compassion, courage and wisdom, but can also be very powerful when pushed too far. This is my second design iteration of the bear. My first attempt didn't capture the quiet strength of the bear. This design captures a good balance: looking friendly and open, and also showing the underlying strength of the bear.
