The Bear

The bear is one of the most powerful animals; he embodies brute strength and unwavering courage. According to legend, Vikings wore bear skins in wartime to scare their enemies. Among the Celts, the bear symbolizes the warrior spirit and the courage to fight. He once passed for the ancestor and cousin of man.


At first, he was revered throughout Europe but later hunted, until its virtual disappearance, yet in France, he still fascinates.

The peculiarities of his hibernation, his ability to self-regulate and draw from within the fundamental resources to endure winter, makes him a source of inspiration.


The bear’s totem animal encourages us to introspection and to wisdom; it represents strength and protection.

A gentle and delicate nature hides under his massive exterior and soft fur.
