The awe-inspiring Ursus arctos, or gigantic brown bear, lives just across the Bering Strait from Alaska. These bears can be the Kamchatka brown bear or the Far Eastern brown bear. Considered to be the ancestor of the Kodiak, the Kamchatka brown bears are dark brown and the largest carnivorans in Eurasia. There was a time in when bears lived everywhere where there was a forest (practically all of Europe). As the woods were cleared, the bears were forced to retreat into more and more remote regions. Already by the Middle Ages the habitat of bears was limited to inaccessible, still wooded mountains. In Europe the best bear habitats are extensive forests on steep-sloped, rocky territory where humans hardly ever stray. Lomonosov Factory mark on the bottom of the leg.  5¾" by 8⅝". 1, as shown.

Two talented artists collaborated to produce many of the "Porcelain Zoo" animal sculptures. Porcelain painter Viktor Zhbanov and sculptor/modeler Pavel Veselov. The fruit of their cooperation produced unique figures that are natural and distinctive in their poses.

The Lomonosov Porcelain Factory (Ломоносовский фарфоровый завод) has had a long history, starting with its name. When founded in 1744, it carried the name Imperial Porcelain Factory (Императорский фарфоровый завод). In 1925, it became Lomonosov, named after the scientist and writer Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-1765). Finally, in 2005, it came full circle and was renamed the Imperial Porcelain Factory (or Manufactory), or IPM, for short.
