“Hummingbird and Bear Bentwood Box”

Edition: 70 |  Stonehenge 100% Cotton Paper

This design depicts the legend of a hummingbird, who, while out gathering nectar from flowers, encountered a bear. This bear was something of a bully, and wouldn’t allow the hummingbird to get near the flowers. Hummingbird tried again and again but the bear blocked her every time. Frustrated, the hummingbird gathered some twigs and flew inside the bear’s nose and down into his stomach, where she used the twigs to start a fire and then flew back outside. With smoke wafting from his nose and mouth, the bear ran away into the forest and never bothered hummingbird again. This legend teaches us that even great obstacles can be overcome.
