The polar bear has become a national symbol of Denmark and the country’s affiliation with the North. It is a symbol of Danish quality and associated with the idea of Danish design, like the most sold porcelain sculptural from Royal Copenhagen or the logo of Nordisk Film. But if looking into the photographic imagery of the national archives of Denmark the polar bear is most often occurring as dead, killed by the man who conquered and proclaimed his right to this “ice world”.
