This image houses a strong influence from Native American art. It really bears towards a subtle balance in the nature of everything. With the bear showcasing a stretch for it's jaw, it borders on the viewpoint of seeing a bear letting out a powerful roar. It's very settled how the appearance can be used for relaxation or for the readying of an attack. One can really connect this to nearly all the points just from the image of the bear itself. The three birds offer a sense of seeing the various stages of things. Completely within the scene, partially out with a view of what's going on inside and completely free from the moment. Even the colors clearly represents the different aspects of nature. You see them as lines outside of the center, yet passing underneath the circle of normalcy. Offering it a connection to the greater unknown and clearly shown within the circle. Within the circle, it symbolizes that one particular aspect of nature. This piece is beautiful outside of heavy complexity while representing the most blatant complex "figure" of them all: nature.
