Polar Bear — an Essence Portrait

The new Polar Bear artwork, a basic Essence Portrait, is the first of a mini-series of bear portraits, which are created from strokes that are the letters from specific, and prophetic Bible texts.

This series was inspired by Daniel 7, where in chapter 5, we read in the King James Version : “And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.”

I intend to artistically, visually, explore what kind of a bear Daniel might have seen in his vision, as well as the symbolism of the bear in End Times, or pre-Messiah or Second Coming prophecy.

The symbol of the bear is used in other prophetic texts, including:

Isaiah 11:7’s “Also the cow and the bear will graze, Their young will lie down together, And the lion will eat straw like the ox.”

Isaiah 59:11’s “All of us growl like bears, And moan sadly like doves; We hope for justice, but there is none, For salvation, but it is far from us.”

And often overlooked in prophecy, but relevant and prophetic, from Proverbs 28:15 –
“Like a roaring lion and a rushing bear Is a wicked ruler over a poor people.”

In 1 Samuel 17:32-37, David as shepherd boy explains his potential ability to defeat the giant Goliath stems from learning to defeat both lions and bears, when he was protecting his flock. Thus the bear, symbolizes what is large, even immense, a giant like Goliath.

Future blogs on upcoming bear Essence Portraits will continue the exploration of the bear prophecies begun here.

The strokes that create the Polar Bear Essence Portrait are the original Torah font letters from the words of these texts: Daniel 7:5, 2 Kings 2:24, Proverbs 28:15, Isaiah 11:7, 2 Samuel 17:8, Proverbs 17:12, and 1 Samuel 17:32-37.  [Note: Since I only use original Torah font letters as my strokes, no texts from the Christian Testament are used here. Although Revelations was written by a Jew who was an early follower of Yeshua (Jesus), earliest versions found to date of Revelations are in Greek; thus I do not have an original Hebrew text to use for my strokes.]
