Bear

In ancient Finnish mythology, the bear was said to be the son of Hongatar, the mother of woodlands, who had given birth to him “up in the heavens, on the shoulders of the Plough”. The bear was treated with great respect and fear, as it was half human and half a forest being, after all. And that is why he who bore the sign of the bear, held sway over both people and nature.
