Great Horned bears are a rare creature, they were hunted almost to extinction for their horns as the outsiders thought they had mythical properties. It was said that whoever possessed a horn would have almighty strength. These bears now only reside in a small area of the Red Tribal Lands and are fiercely protected by the Red Tribe natives, in return the bears offer their assistance to the native people as they have for 500 years. Despite what many people think, Great Horned Bears are very intelligent creatures, something only the Tribal Lands, or Cry India as the natives call it, know. Both sexes of the bears have horns, however the males have bigger horns than the females
Great Horned Bears mainly eat fruits, nuts and seeds but will often dine of meats like fish and small mammals.
Another doll coming from the newly discovered tribal region, this time residing in the Red Tribal Lands. The creatures in these lands are a little different to those anywhere else as they often are adorned with tribal markings on their bodies, however this particular bear does not. I wanted to create a bear with a green colouring but posses elements of fantasy like horns. I decided to go with this Mongolian faux fur in my favourite green colour and break up the muzzle area with some white.
Makwa has a resin face and paws that were cast from an original sculpture hand crafted by me. His body is made from thick faux fur which was designed and sewn by me, he has a wire armature inside making him fully poseable, his face was furred by hand and painted in acrylic paints.
Makwa is approximately 30 x 18cm head to tail.
Makwa will be up for grabs in my shop: https://www.creaturesofnat.com/shop-1 this Friday between 9-10am AEST. Alternatively you can check me out on my social media pages below. Also check out my Society6 and Redbubble shop for prints and more.
