Tiny Cave Bear Necklace
My tiny 3D cave bear necklace is teeny tine from head to toe. This little bruin is cast via the lost wax cast method with remarkable detail for such a small specimen, he displays excellent hair detail and you can even see his little bear behind. He hangs in a natural standing position from his chain, ready to protect you with tooth and nail. The cave bear was a species of bear that only lived in Europe during the Pleistocene and became extinct at the beginning of the last ice age about 27,500 years ago. Both the name cave and the scientific name spelaeus derive from the fact that fossils of this species were mostly found in caves, indicating that this species spent more time in caves than the brown bear, which only uses caves for hibernation. Consequently, in the course of time, whole layers of bones, almost entirely those of skeletons, were found in many caves.
