"Floral Bear" Original by Santie Cronje, 2021.
'Bear is a strong symbol in folklore. Its presence a reminder to stand strong in our beliefs and our truths. Bear is also our connection to nature and a simpler life. Nurture, rest, family and solitude.'.
Arctic Fauna: There are about 20 species of land animals in the Arctic, including Polar bear, fox, wolf, moose, caribou, reindeer etc. Polar bears can be found accross the Arctic from the US and Canada to Russia, Greenland and Norway. The polar bear is listed as vulnerable with estimated numbers ranging between 22000 - 31 000.
Arctic Flora: Approximately 1700 species of plants live on the Arctic tundra. From flowering plants to herbs, shrubs, grasses, mosses and lichens. I have incorporated some of these arctic flowers (like the Purple Saxifrage and Pasque flower) into the paintings to put the focus on the environment and the gentle ecosystems in nature and all living beings equally important.
