That is really sad.  I first thought he killed the bears but now I see the significance.  Sometimes what an older generation has to offer is priceless and is lost in antiquity.

Maybe its some kinda of red cross symblozing something like "No", since it seems to be going trough the bear, but doesn't touch the boy. It could be a way to show how younger generations are denying tradition and language in some way o3o
I don't know!
