Product Description

The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene and became extinct at the beginning of the Last Glacial Maximum, about 27,500 years ago.Both the name "cave" and the scientific name spelaeus derive from the fact that fossils of this species were mostly found in caves, indicating this species spent more time in caves than the brown bear, which only uses caves for hibernation.

From a true cave-dwelling bear from the Carpathian Mountain caves near Brasso, Brasov, or Kronstadt, Romania, (URSUS SPELAEUS), this item has been professionally restored & stabilized.  This bear grew to 10' or more in length, and up to a ton in weight.  The Romanian cave bear is larger than the Russian (Ursus Uralensis) bear (which is a cave hibernating bear but not a cave dwelling bear).  Dated to the Pleistocene Era (42,000 to 100,000 years ago). 

This is a unique work of talented artist Eddie Lee. He is one of the most gifted artists in the Northwest whose love for nature has given him the special ability to breathe life into his carvings.  Eddie Lee creates all of his wonderful sculptures in north Alaska and also designs most of his pieces with either dreams or visions he has had.Approx. 9" L and 5"H.
