Polar Bear Weathervane – Standing on Ice

Polar Bear Standing on Ice Weather Vane


This Polar Bear Weathervane design is created in copper in a highly detailed swell-bodied style. To capture the Polar Bear’s distinctive white fur, we used optional gold leaf. In addition, the details of the bear’s fur are enhanced with distinct tooling. Glass eyes give the polar bear a realistic look, especially when they glint in the sun. The addition of the gold leaf makes this one of our most striking weathervanes.

This weather vane is an example of a non-mirror image design. More typically, a weather vane is a mirror image, i.e. exactly the same on both sides. But when the goal is to convey a sense of action, it often works better to have two distinctly different sides. While more dynamic, this style of sculpture piece requires greater skill to construct.

We also have our Polar Bear and Leopard Seal Weathervane, that might also be of interest.


The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a bear native to the Arctic. Polar bears and Kodiak bears are the world’s largest land carnivores, with most adult males weighing 300-600 kg (660-1320 lb); adult females are about half the size of males. Its fur is hollow and translucent, but usually appears as white or cream colored, thus providing the animal with effective camouflage. The polar bear is a vulnerable species at high risk of extinction.
