Earth Bear - COMPLETE!

Bear attack!!! Representing the strong and endurant element of earth/land/soil is this bear. Currently, I just refer to him as the "Earth Bear." On his gauntlets and head ornament are 2 forms of the precious stone: topaz. The crystals that grow on his back differ from location and season. Right now, they are the pure amber variety of topaz. Eventually, they'll chip off or fall off like deer antlers. Fallen gems become part of the soil. The shapes looking like the letter "I" on the gauntlets are "Earth" in Kanji (Chinese characters).
