Polar bears are synonymous with the Arctic regions. The Polar Bear card reflects the grace and poise, as well as the tenacity of the polar bear that exists in extreme conditions. Using minimal lines and a limited colour palette, we have tried to convey a snowy, windswept archipelago. Somewhere the Polar Bears would frequent in their constant quest for food and a safe place to wander in the ice-filled landscape.
By offering card sets of five, we hope for you to spread the love of Polar Bears, that we ourselves have and give a unique gift to those you love and cherish. Whether it is a birthday, for Christmas, a graduation, a wedding, or some other occasion that warrants something special, the Polar Bear card is a great companion or is delightful on its own.
The illustration on the card above, was taken from a larger artwork titled, Polar bears seeking warmth in Mother Winter with Dogwood, featured below.

More on the Polar Bear
You can find Polar Bears living around the Arctic Circle. This could be in Norway, North America and parts of Russia. According to Polar Bears International, Polar Bears main diet includes seal blubber, which is important to keep up internal fat stores. This, in turn, enables the soft and fluffy predators to live in one of the harshest environments on Earth. Floating on the pack ice, in search of food when the Spring melt begins, is where you’ll likely find Polar Bears. Which is why sometimes, they end up in towns that rim the Arctic Circle. Svalbard, with a location of 77.8750° N, sees Polar bears wander into human environs on a regular basis. Inhabitants are required to carry firearms in case of sightings and dogs are a constant companion, alerting their human companions to the threat of Polar Bears. Although the bears would much rather be chewing on seals, in the harsh Arctic environment, the claws of the Polar Bear, can easily rip through protective clothing.
