"This was my first non-feline sculpture! I've always been fascinated by the polar bear's appearance: that fat, fluffy wedge-shaped stuffed-teddy-bear-like body contrasted with a detailed, angular, sculptural head and long, powerful neck. But the more I learned about these wanderers of the North, the more I found they are like the big cats! Carnivores like the cats, they are mostly solitary, though the young stay with their mothers until nearly grown, learning the skills of life. They travel far and wide in search of prey, but, unlike the big cats, when they do come across others of their kind they often stay and play together for awhile! The terms we use in describing the big cats apply as aptly to these denizens of the Arctic ice: supple agility, strength and dexterity, curious, shrewd, smart, adaptable, and above all, patient. Perhaps I should have called this sculpture "Ice Cats"!" - Rosetta
