Bear (Invincibility)

A Matter of Strength in Native American Culture

North American Natives have a life philosophy based in nature, and believe that every object, even inanimate ones, have a soul, and regard everything in nature as sacred. The bear, being the strongest animal in nature, symbolizes absolute power and invincibility.

It is a Matter of…

While bears symbolize rudeness and poor manners in our culture, they are viewed in a more positive light in other cultures, in part because of their strength. For example, to bear up means to remain brave under a mental or emotional burden. So to call someone a bear can also be seen as a compliment.

ABOUT PESHKIR
This special Anatolian cloth is known as the ancestor of towels, with the name coming from the Farsi Piş (front) and Gir (to hold). Found in many regions and palaces, it was used as a place setting or a napkin placed on the lap, and was given great importance in the Ottoman palace. In the present day, still keeping its function as a napkin it can also be used as a towel.
