Why attribute?

Most artists earn from their work by the form of royalties and commercial licenses. I chose not to do this with my art work. I wanted my work to be a creative resource for those who wanted modern unique art work to incorporate in their crafting projects. I rely on viewers knowing the origin of my art work and then coming to me for more images. This is why it is important to attribute this image online.

At the same time, I understand that if you want to tattoo this image on yourself, engrave it, cast it, emboss it etc.. I would not want my name on it in real life... it would not be practical! This is why I waive the requirement to attribute offline. If you publish work where this image is central to the piece or project in your online shop, social media or elsewhere on the internet, please attribute or link to me :-)



______________________________________________________
What can you use this image on?

Anything. I myself use these images as designs on my jewellery, as tattoo art or as vinyl stickers. I know of others who use these images on their leather work, jewellery or wood burning.

You are allowed to build upon them, so you can colour them in for patterns on machine embroidery, use them as digital stamps or integrate them into your scrap book or collage art.

You can even print them on mugs, t-shirts, temporary tattoos etc.

You can add them as decoration to your invites, cards, labels, thank you notes, your website any way you would use digital clip art.

About the Bjarmaland Bear design

Bjarmaland, as known to the Vikings, was a region now in the far north western Russia. The people who lived there belonged to the Finno-Ugric tribes, the same ones I as a Finn descent from. Within our heritage the Bear was the king of the forest, both revered, worshipped and feared. Saying its true name was taboo, as you could draw attention to yourself. Even today most of the words we use for the bear in Finland translate to "Coarse furred one", "Honey paw" and "Forest king".

This design has several elements (position of the bear, scrolls and the detail on the paws) of iron age cast bronze artefacts from the region. It is not an exact reproduction and I have added to it aesthetics that are pleasing to our modern eyes. To me personally this is still a powerful shamanic image that I am happy to share with all of you who love the ancestral version of the Teddy Bear.
