Bear Art about bears. Painting bears.

Bear. Art about Bears. Paintings depicting Bear. Bears (Latin Ursidae) are a family of carnivorous mammals. Bear differs from other representatives of dog-like family with a stocky build.

Bear. Art about Bears. Paintings depicting Bear. Bears are omnivorous; they can climb and swim good, run fast, can stand and run short distances on their hind legs. They have a short tail, long and thick fur and excellent sense of smell and hearing. They hunt at night or at dawn. They are usually afraid of humans, but they can be dangerous in the places where they are accustomed to people, especially the polar bear and a grizzly bear. Bears are immune to bee stings. Bears almost don't have natural enemies in their environment.


Bear. Art about Bears. Paintings depicting Bear. Bears are found in Eurasia, North and South America (mainly in Northern Hemisphere). The natural habitat of the family does not spread to the south beyond the Atlas Mountains (North Africa), the north-western part of the Andes (South America) and the Malay Archipelago. The bears were common in Europe, except Iceland; in Asia, besides the Arabian Peninsula and on the island of Sulawesi and the Philippine Islands, and in North America to central Mexico. Spectacled bear lives isolated in the mountainous regions of South America. In historical time the habitat of the family greatly reduced by human activity (direct extermination or destruction of the natural environment); bears have disappeared in large parts of Europe, North America, North Africa and Japan. Within the Russian Federation only the representatives of the genus Ursus were found.

Bear. Paintings depicting bears. The history of evolution of bears. The history of modern bears emerging. All carnivorous mammals have roots in the group of primitive marten-like predators, known as Miacidae and they lived in the Paleocene - Eocene to Oligocene, giving birth to the ancestors of modern carnivores. Actually bears belong to the suborder of Caniformia, whose representatives supposedly descended from a common dog-like ancestor. The origin of the bears can be traced to Cephalogale, a raccoon-sized animal that lived in the middle of the Oligocene - early Miocene (20-30 million years ago) in Europe. It started the kind of Ursavus, a predator of an average dog size, whose fossils were found in middle Miocene deposits of Eurasia.

Bear. Species of bears. Paintings depicting the bears. History of evolution of bears. The story of bears emerging. Ursavus elmensis, one of the earliest types, gave start to the birth of Protursus and Pilonarctus families about 20 million years ago, which respectively gave start to modern bears (Ursus) and the representatives of Tremarctinae subfamily. To the latter, except modern spectacled bear, were extinct genera included, such as Florida cave bear (Tremarctos floridanus) and the North-America flat-faced bear (genus Arctodus). Arctodus simus and Arctodus pristinus types are considered to be the largest among the bears. There was the largest number of genera and species of bears in the Pliocene in Eurasia and North America. The first real bear, Ursus minimus, appeared about 5-6 million years ago; it is a mammal, about the Malay bear size, known out of fossils in France territory (Roussillon). About 2.5 million years ago there was a large Etruscan bear, Ursus etruscus, known out of fossils not only in Europe but also in China. Presumably it started "black bears": baribal and Himalayan bear.

Bear. Species of bears. Paintings depicting the bears. History of evolution of bears. The story of bears emerging. Larger forms of bears, Ursus etruscus, that lived about 1.5 million years ago, have given the beginning to a modern brown and polar bears, as well as to cave bears, known from Pleistocene, such as Ursus savini (about 1 million years ago), Ursus deningeri (700,000 years ago ) and the cave bear Ursus spelaeus (300,000 years ago). Many bears (6-7 species) become extinct in the Anthropogenesis.

Bear. Paintings of bear. Habits of bears. Many of bears are sedentary; males of polar bears roam widely throughout the year, females with young- only a part of the year. Brown bear, Himalayan and black bear spend most of the winter in the lair (a den), in hibernation. During this period, they live off the accumulated fat reserves. Among the white bears only pregnant females fall in hibernation. Other species do not sleep in the winter.

Bear. Paintings of bear. Habits of bears. At first sight bears are rather slow and clumsy, but in reality they are quite capable of running fast (up to 50 km / h), to climb, to stand on their hind legs, some are great at swimming. Visual acuity is comparable to certain types of men. Herbivorous baribal has a color vision, allowing it to distinguish the color of edible fruits and nuts. However, smell is the most developed among the bears, like among many wild animals.

In mythology and ritual bear may act as a deity (such as dying and resurrecting), cultural hero, founder of the tradition, ancestor, the founder, totem, spirit-guardian, spirit-healer, the owner of the lower world, the sacred and (or) sacrificial animal, zoomorphic classifier, astral element code, the embodiment of the soul, the giver, animal that is twin of man, shaman assistant, his zoomorphic hypostasis and soul, werewolf, etc.

Bear. Bears and Art. Legends about bears. Myths about bears. Paintings of Bears. Bear is one of the main characters of the animal epic tales, epics, songs, riddles, superstitions, charms, etc. Its value is determined primarily by its likeness to a man, interpreted by myth poetic consciousness as an indication of the mutuality of their origin or origin of each other.


Bear. Bears and Art. Legends about bears. Myths about bears. Paintings of Bears. Relationship between man and the bear. The theme of similarity or identity of Bear and a man in different means reveals a bear hunting ritual; it forms the core of the Bear cult. One of the main stages of the ritual bear hunting (after Bear killing) in Siberian traditions is "undoing" and the subsequent removal of skin (or "coat"), which means the first stage of the adoption of Bear by human group (conversion Bear into the man and removing differences between them), followed by a second stage - the eating of bear meat. Bear ritual ("bear festival") remained in a number of traditions (Ob Ugrics, Kets, nivkhs etc.) up to 20 century; in many remnants it can be restored for other traditions.

In addition, a number of evidences (the image of Bear in the caves of France, findings of the large accumulation of bear bones in the caves of Germany and Switzerland, assembled in a certain order, which is similar to the current bearish rituals; petroglyphs of Scandinavia, the Urals and Siberia) makes undeniable the archaic mythopoetic representations about bear and associated cults and exceptional resistance of man’s view on Bear nature and its sacred significance.

Bear. Bears and Art. Legends about bears. Myths about bears. Paintings of Bears. Two types of bear rituals (holidays) are usually distinguished within Eurasia - West (Ob Ugrics, Kets, Evenk), that are associated with the hunting of the bear, and the Far East (Nivkh, Ainu people and other peoples of the Pre-Amur region, Sakhalin; to the same type refer the rituals found in Vietnamese), which include upbringing the bear in the human family. Different types of mimetic "bear dance" is known in a number of Siberian peoples and the North American Indians, which is performed in connection with the upcoming hunting or with the successful completion of it, during healing ceremony. Sometimes a bear dancing in bear masks and costumes, accompanied by a "bear songs" is the prerogative of the special members - bear - societies and it is devoted to the main holiday of the tribe. Partially bear rites are reflected in folk medicine. In some Indian tribes bear is the main and the most powerful patron of the "healing" corporations, in some cases it appears with special rituals. In many traditions it was believed that the healing power of the Bear can be applied not only to people but also to livestock (cattle, deer, etc.). At the same time bear could also act as a "cow enemy" (in the Russian folk tradition the image of Yegor, the protector of cattle against the Bear, and the numerous spells of the bear in defense of the cows).

Bear. Bears and Art. Legends about bears. Myths about bears. Paintings of Bears. The widespread view was that the souls of the most powerful shamans had the ability to turn into a bear, eagle or elk. In a number of Siberian and North American traditions the institutionalization of a special group of bear shamans has occurred, who were not only identifying themselves to the bear, but in many cases, "made a bear looking" the participants of the ritual - the customers (e.g. dressing themselves and customers in a bear outfit). The ability to shape-shifting and turning into a bear was referred to sorcerers (in Pechora Komi and other traditions). Bear masks and costumes correlate with a wide range of rituals, associated with costuming of the man into the bear and have lost direct contact with hunting (Russian ceremonial tradition costuming into Bear, acting with bear in the Poles and Czechs, and others). There are also numerous data on the participation of the bears in the rites of a more formal character, the main function of which was the representation of royal majesty. In ancient Eastern descriptions of "animal" cortege Bear played an important role along with other "king of beasts", the lion. "Compatibility" of Bear and Lion is typical for the biblical tradition.

Bear. Bears and Art. Legends about bears. Myths about bears. Paintings of Bears. A bear ritualism is conceptualized as a mythological images and related subjects level as well as at the level of mythological stories about cohabiting of the women, who got lost in the forest, with a bear or the relationship with the bear and a hunter; and therefore, a special category of semi-men and bears, mentioned in the folk texts and literary adaptations (e.g., in the story Mérimée "Lokys"). Mythological ideas about these hybrid beings are known among the Kets (in images of Kaige and Koyotbyl), the Evenki and Evens, Nivkh and other nations. Information on the "people-bear" was found in ancient Eastern (including Hittite) texts. In this context, it is motivated not only the idea of the bear as a kind of spirit - the owner of the forests, mountains, animals, the patron of hunting, but the relationship with the human race: Bear is the ancestor of the people, their elder relative and, finally, totem. The Bear cult in nations where the phratric totemism was developed often was motivated by its totemic function.

Ob Ugrians considered bear as the ancestor of the the phratry Por, a cult of Bear later became common tribe; Bear clan was part of the phratry Wolf at Tlingit; later Bear clan was also found at Huron, the Iroquois and other Indian tribes. With this set of ideas the interpretation of Bear as a relative of the myth and ritual is associated. Subject of relationship (the master of the forest) is reflected by taboo names of Bear - "father", "grandfather", "granddad", "old man", "uncle", "stepfather", "mother", "grandmother", "old woman", "forests man "," beast "," master (of forest, mountains), "" lord, "" Prince of beasts, "etc. There are other principles of taboo names of Bear: in Russian "Bear", that is "eating honey".

There are known "bear" names of people (Welsh king literally is translated as "son of Bear"; Indian of Crow tribe, whose name literally means "a lot of bears"; names like Medvedev, starts reverse process of "humanization" of Bear - Mike, Mikhail Ivanovich, Michael Potapych, Toptygin, etc.), as well as other deities and mythological characters (or, at least, the "bear" epithets to them), "bear" - epithet of Celtic Mercury (with Gallic arto, "bear") etc.; ancient Greek name of  Centaur in Hesiod, denoted Arcturus, keeper of the Great Bear in the constellation of Bootes. The image of the Bear- progenitor is connected to the idea of ​​it as the first cultural hero. Ob Ugric associate bringing the fire or the ability to use it with the brown bear and the Nenets associate it with a polar bear. Sometimes the cause of progenitor is more veiled. Kwakiutl Indians had their origin from the marriage of bear with a male ancestor, in the Ilimsk Evenki myth, the bear is one of the assistants of the Raven - the creator of the universe, but later the Raven punished the Bear, but it did not eliminate it completely, putting people to observe the peoples’ life (custom to assimilate the crow-strangers in bear rite and while hunting bear in Evenki). Bear is associated with higher levels of mythological system or with other characters that have individualized features and special names. Bear features are observed in the form of higher gods, creators of the universe and the ancestors of people, like Numi-Torum the Ob Ugric and Mansi, Num in Nenets (also bear shoulders of Oguz father- Oguz Khan, regarded as a son or a daughter of the bear).

There is a common idea among many people that Bear was formerly a celestial being, endowed with divine qualities, but later lowered by the heavenly god on earth for disobedience (at Hunt), for an attempt to scare the god (at Buryats) to punish sinners (in some traditions it was believed that man scratched by the bear was a sinner and when the bear turned out to be killed, they believed that it had angered the heavenly god, who punished it). Often God could take the image of the Bear by himself, when he wanted to appear to people on the ground (the Volga legends about Keremet). Such motives as "The Bear, the son of the god of heaven" (in particular, associated with thunder), "Bear transferring from heaven to earth", "The Bear and the fertility" make it possible to include the image of a bear in the scheme of so-called basic myth. In this context, the identification (or, at least, a close approach) of the bear cult in Volga region livestock god Veles, the opponent of Thunder with Bear is significant.

In the Greek tradition Bear is a cult animal (along with a fallow-deer) of Artemis (Arcadian Artemis had the bear features). In Attica priestesses of Artemis at the festival were dressing into bearskins and performed a dance, in honor of Artemis sacrificed a bear, and there was a tame bear at her temple. The companion of Artemis, nymph Callisto, was turned by Artemis (another version - Zeus) into a bear, and then Zeus moved her to the sky as the Ursa Major constellation (another myth is about the mother bear, which, having taught its daughter to handle the meat and bones of the Bear, went on its way up and became the Ursa Minor constellation).

Bear features are observed in the patron of the Swiss city, Bern Artio, in the male deity of Labrador Eskimos Torngarsoaka, who was honored in the form of a white bear. The symbolic significance of the Bear in different (including later) mythopoetic systems are related not only to the strength, courage, perseverance, endurance, but also to violence, rage, laziness. In the biblical tradition Bear refers to the Persian kingdom, carrying death and destruction. In the Old and New Testament the image of the bear is drawn as a terrible fiction or even apocalyptic beast.

In the animal epics, fables and related iconography Bear often serves as a mean of social satire, it is the symbol of the flesh, tamed itself, in hagiographic literature and iconography.
