Bears in the Bush

Black Bears and Grizzlys


« Back to Album Photo 1 of 4 Previous | Next
Kumo is a young black bear, he is made from luxuriously long and dense Shulte alpaca in brown with a black tip. His eyes are deluxe English glass and I have added leather upper and lower eyelids with little needle felted eye whites in the corners. Kumo's face has been extensively scissor and needle sculpted to create a friendly demeanour and he has a beautiful sculpted leather nose. His feet are appliqued ultra suede which have been sculpted and then painted to highlight them. The realism of this bear is enhanced by a wonderful set of individually sculpted claws, each one painted and hardened so that they look and feel just like the claws of a real animal. Kumo is six way jointed, he has a double neck joint and armatured limbs for posing. I have kept Kumo softly filled so, despite his claws he remains a very cuddly bear, he has the added weight of glass pellets in his belly. This bear measures approximately 19" (48cm) head to toe, 15" (38cm) nose to tail and 11" (28cm) at the shoulder standing on all fours. He is available to order for $1000,00 Au + shipping.
