This is an exceptional piece in terms of balance, curves, proportions and coloration. The electric white marble stone with its exquisitely smooth texture encompass the re-fineness of the piece. It immediately caught my eye due to the fact that the proportions are absolutely impeccable. The roundness and voluptuousness of the piece create a glorification of how a dancing bear should be. This carving in one word is "perfection" at its finest.
The white marble stone is also a gorgeous color with its striking electric veins riding across the entire surface. This gives so much depth to the piece. it is clear that this bear is made by a very renowned artist as Ottokie is one of the finest artists for dancing bears on the planet. Its beauty is so mesmerizing as it has a tremendous stance with its grace. It is in full motion and extremely dynamic with its movements.
This bear is signed on the bottom by Ottokie and comes with an igloo tag.
