1878 – The Syrian Bear


“The Syrian Bear – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “This is the portrait of a Syrian Bear. It was a bear like this that David slew, as the animal was seizing a lamb out of the flock; and one of the same kind once killed forty-two children, who were so wicked as to mock at God’s prophet Elisha, as he went up from Jericho to Bethel.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
