What a show off!
Incredible strength, perfect form.
This amazing creature is balancing on his front paw with his body in a very lateral position.
Many Diving bears hold their bodies parallel to the floor.
This position takes even more talent on the part of the artist to achieve.
As I stare at this incredible carving, it strikes me that Armstrong will be in this position forever!
Abraham Simeonie is one of my favourite carvers of small Dancing and Diving bears.
This colour of browns and caramels is particularly sumptuous.
Small bears are a never fail gift for any occasion.
