The seven stars that make up the Big Dipper are arguably one of the most recognized formations in the night sky. They are visible year-round from northern latitudes, and have inspired countless legends around the globe. Many First Nations legends describe the Big Dipper as a great bear who is hunted ceaselessly by three hunters. The fourth issue in this four-coin series reveals how the wounded bear continues to evade the hunters who are locked in an eternal pursuit.
Western Ojibwa artist Cyril Assiniboine has created a stunning scene of a cold winter night with a ghostly figure of the great bear running across the star-filled sky close to the horizon, with three hunters in eternal pursuit.
A wonderful keepsake for star gazers and history buffs; anyone with a passion for Canada’s rich ancestral past and its mystifying First Nations traditions and legends.
