6' Bear with Paddle and Solar Power Lantern. This hand carved bear sculpture is sure to add to your rustic décor. Ready for your indoor or outdoor landscape - for the cabin, lodge, second home. Our bears are carved from salvaged, standing dead, dry, lodgepole pine.
Our carvings are generally sealed with an outdoor marine spar varnish. All sizes are approximate and may vary by several inches in any direction; height is overall height of log, which is bear plus the base, not the actual bear height.
