Inuit art: Walking Bear
Inuit Artist: Tim (Timothy) Pee
Size: 9.5” long, 3.5” high, 3” wide
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
Masterpiece Sculpture! Magnificent Movement!
Just as the name Henry Evaluardjuk became synonymous with wonderful walking bears, Tim Pee's name is intimately connected to this style of walking bear which is sleek and striding.
Tim is one of those special artists whose style is immediately recognizable by Inuit art enthusiasts.
Pee is a prolific carver of bears and yet, each of his bears are unmatched in their beauty.
With this particular piece, Tim has replicated the sense of movement so accurately that the bear seems to be lifting his legs and swiftly moving forward.
How is that possible?
How can you carve life into a piece of marble? Is Pee harnessing the natural energy of the stone?
Isn't this bear miraculous?
The deep black/brown stone is sensual and shows every beautiful line of this gorgeous walking bear. The fine gold coloured veins caress the body of the bear.
This piece is so stunning.
Tim Pee is a magician!
