Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Abraham Manning
Size: 5" tall, 3" wide, 2.5" deep
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
This bear was obviously carved by an artist who carefully observed the animal subjects and Loved them. Despite being carved from a large sized, heavy stone, the work has a lightness of spirit. The apple green stone is divine and electric.
The reflection, polish and shine are divine. The proportions are perfect and very life like.
