The Grizzly Bear (Ursus Arctos) is a typical North America bear. Scientists tend to call it the North American brown bear. The name Grizzly was given to it by the explorers Lewis and Clark in the 19th century after its "grizzled" golden and grey tips of hair. This unique wood art was created by artists John and Martha Barrow from Peru. The sculpture is made of Amazonian Ishpingo wood (Scientific name: Amburana Ceará) that is crafted by hand and is colored using natural dyes. This stunning fine wood from Peru is dramatic, stable, hard, light weight, crisp, and tropical. Each sculpture is made of dozens of unique parts put together in a harmonious and pleasant way. The pieces of the wood are put together using a unique puzzle-like technique developed by the artist. The process ensures protection of the environment.
