Photographer Lassi Rautiainen recently captured the profound partnership between a she-wolf and a brown bear in the wilds of northern Finland. For days, he witnessed the strange pair meet every evening to share food after a hard day of hunting. No one knows when or how this relationship was formed, “but it is certain that by now each of them needs the other.”
"Here’s my ‘De Gier’ Firebird- custom model, hand-made by De Gier Guitars from The Netherlands. Tonepros bridge, Klein Firebird pick ups, blue metallic lacquer with dead-flat top coat. 9-ply Honduras mahogany & walnut neck-through, Honduras mahogany body, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Re-designed headstock with Gotoh stealth tuners- no diving neck and it stays in tune :-) - this is one rare Firebird! I love this guitar- a beautiful interpretation of a classic." - Jean-Paul
