I have had the idea of showing this family of bears crossing a chasm for some time. It wasn't until I found a painting by Caspar David Friedrich that I was able to resolve the set-up and composition. I hope this piece conveys the idea of these bears overcoming a vast and rough landscape as they head towards the high path and the light in the distance.
