Ocmulgee Bear

The Ocmulgee Bear, painted by Ivey, Georgia artist Denise Kiefer, is also known by the title “Spirits in the Sky.” This bear, which is the only seated bear of the group, features a vibrant night sky revealing a Native American spirit watching over the silhouetted skyline of Macon and the Ocmulgee National Monument. Inspired by the combination of centuries of history prior to the settlement of the city of Macon and the more recent history of Macon and Bibb County, this bear celebrates all the people who have called the banks of the Ocmulgee River home. The shape of the seated bear even mimics the shape of the Ocmuglee mounds depicted on its body.
