Hiy'u m, meaning "bear" in Nez Perce, is a slightly smaller than life-size head study of a Black Bear. This exquisite table top piece sits steadily on its base: a beautiful expression of style on a mantel, sofa table or end table.
Bret Overturf's sculptures have recently been shown in galleries across the west and southwestern United States.

The Nez Perce Indians were close to nature, the Earth was like a mother that gave them the things they needed for life. Before becoming an adult, a young Nez Perce would go out to the mountains alone to pray and fast and would seek a special guardian for their protection throughout life. The guardian spirit often took shape in the fortitude of a bear.
