Giulia ...
" This bear is represented as an animal that lives in the cold north pole. It is fully white painted. It seems like it is attacking a prey because it is standing on its colossal legs. Its look is really aggressive, typical of an animal of this size. "

1940 catalogue description

" These animals are found throughout the whole of the Arctic regions. They live principally on fish and seal flesh. When fighting, they do not hug like the Brown Bear but bite, although generally they do not attack unless provoked or hungry. "
