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.
