MASTERPIECE CARVING MUSEUM CALIBRE!!!!
Watch this Dancing bear as he glides on his skates up the lake, turns and then comes back toward you.
Yes! You have it right! This is the Singles Ice Dancing competition.
His arm position is impeccable, 90 degree elbows. His wrists are beautifully flexed and his head is held high with the muzzle pointed to the sky.
Skating Judges .... 9.1 9.3 9.2 10.0!
Adla's Dancing bear is realistic and naturalistic. This means it is carved to replicate a real bear that is engaging in its natural behaviours.
Didn't you know polar bears skate? (I'm joking. Have you seen the lumpy and bumpy surface of the frozen Arctic Sea?)
Adla's bears are consistent in their perfection. His magnum opus (Masterwork) is the large bear sculpture.
I can truthfully tell you that every Adla carving I see has a special "je ne sais quoi".
I want each one in my private collection. (But then that wouldn't be fair).
Adla's creations will always meet your high expectations.
His bears will give you pause every day and bring you years of joy.
Ashevak has signed this Elegant Skater on the bottom of his paw.
