Art print on canvas Polar Bear 40x40cm

The polar bears, the largest bears on earth, have walked ashore now and then since the land was built and probably much longer. Icelanders have always greeted this dangerous predator rather badly when it has been tangled up on land, after all, they have often attacked people. Polar bears have usually been killed when they are seen on land, as there was great wealth in such an animal in a harsh land where conditions were severe. Now, however, times are better and therefore needless to kill the animals unless human life or valuables are threatened.
In the spring of 1993, a bill was passed in Althingi, which stipulates, among other things, that the prohibition of catching polar bears on sea ice or swimming, but may catch a live bear and move it where it does not cause harm. For me, the polar bear is an example of a predator that has no relationship with humans and has pay for it with their lives for centuries.
