About This Item

Ursa Major and Ursa Minor

This “Bear” series of travel bugs are each named for fictional bears of children’s literature, comic books, cartoons, mythology and animated shorts or features. 

In Greek mythology, Zeus (the king of the gods) lusts after a young woman named Callisto, a nymph of Artemis.  Hera, the jealous wife of Zeus, transforms the beautiful Callisto into a bear.  Callisto, while in bear form, later encounters her son Arcas.  Arcas almost shoots the bear, but to avert the tragedy,  Zeus turns Arcas into a bear as well and puts mother and son in the sky, forming the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor.  The Big Dipper is mostly Ursa Major while the Little Dipper is wholly Ursa Minor.
