small sculpture of a shaman, mid-transformation into a bear. It’s a few inches long, the kind of thing you might keep in your pocket.  Apparently an aspect of Inuit and Eskimo shamanism is not only the shaman’s ability to transform into a bear (or vice versa), but also his ability to contemplate or see his own skeleton. So these three symbols of bear, shaman and skeleton together symbolize the underlying power of the shaman in much of the far north and the arctic.
