IRKUIEM

Kamchatka Bear God

Also known as God Bear

Bear God with no pants

He is a wild cryptozoological bear who is said to roam the Kamchatka Peninsula. Naturally he is also worshiped as a deity.

This wonderfully-named creature is known to the Kamchatka people as ‘Trousers Pulled Down’. Which makes him a bare god as well as a bear god.

Apparently the name refers to the fur around his legs and butt. We hope he doesn’t get too chilly in the Siberian nether regions.
