Bear berries are a fruit found on the arctic and sub-arctic tundra floor. Maybe they are called that because bears feed on them, which I am sure they do. Unfortunately, the screen image here cannot do the print’s fine lines and details justice. I did manage to give this engraving a sense of depth as if to reach down through the moss to get the berries.
