I am ecstatic!
Very recently, this new 2020 Nuna Parr bear presented itself to me.
Without question, it is THE quintessential Nuna Parr Dancing Bear.
Over the past ten years, I have seen dozens of Nuna Parr bears some of which have been exquisitely spectacular.
Believe me when I say .... every aspect, every detail of this carving is ICONIC.
The arching back.
The dignified demeanour.
The grace and athleticism of the “dance”.
The gleaming flawless stone.
This piece takes my breath away.
Recently, I hadn’t allowed myself to hope for another iconic Nuna Parr dancing bear to enter my gallery.
Three years ago, I purchased a group of three Nuna Parr bears which were unrivalled by any of his previous carvings. My clever clients purchased all three bears within a few days.
I know this beauty will not be unclaimed for long. Many of my clients call and ask me “When will you be receiving another Nuna bear?”
Sadly, Nuna has been carving with less frequency over the past two years.
I am so thrilled to have this Masterpiece of Masterpiece carvings. I struggled with the decision as to whether I should keep this piece for my private collection.
Do NOT miss this chance to have this piece as the showcase carving in your collection. You will be envied by many collectors if this piece becomes yours. Its majesty will give you a lifetime of joy.
This bear is signed on the bottom by Nuna Parr and comes with the Igloo Tag of Authenticity.
Our gallery is one of the galleries selected by the Federal Government of Canada to use the Igloo Tag program.
