The original photo of "Bears Belly" has no bears included. I always liked this image, then researched some of this mans story and found out that he was a Original founder of the "Old Scout Society" which was formed after the U.S. vs Indian Wars in the early 1900's. Bears Belly was a large man with a mean disposition that was quelled when he sought spiritual healing from years of war. A medicine man or advisor told him to go find the bear hide and happened to come upon three bears in the same area. All three bears were shot and he sold two to the trading post and he kept the one he's wearing. I also added the snout since it wasn't in the original.
