Ice and Claws (North Seas series) by 

This image of a polar bear walking gingerly across the ice is accompanied by a quote from the last stanza of the poem Arktos by Ari Berk:

Wind of knives and fury born of stars
May not deter a giant built of ice and claws
Unless the sleep of solstices be on him
He, Son of Sedna and the Northern Waste

This image is included in my ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL calendar: LINK TO CALENDAR HERE

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.
