Description

Japanese finely carved model of a bear from Hokkaido.

Kibori kuma is a Japanese rural craft that consists of a wooden carving of a bear with a fish in its mouth.

The sculptures are mainly produced in Hokkaido; small carvings are sold as souvenirs of the island.

The most common design depicts a brown bear biting a chum salmon, and the sculptor portrays the bear's thick bristles by using an axe. However, many variations of the kibori kuma have evolved.

Circa 1960.
