Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Johnny Papigatook
Size: 8" Tall, 5" Wide
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
This is a gorgeous, voluptuous bear done in an exquisite stone. The color conveys a very warm yet modernistic feel to it. The curvatures of the bear are absolutely stunning. The proportions and lines are perfect.
Their spirited nature is infectious. It is impossible to look at these winsome bears and feel unhappy. Somehow these petite carvings give us permission to shed our reserve and simply enjoy the moment.
