I was astounded when I saw this Ottokie Ashoona bear.

Yes, this is a beautifully carved Ashoona bear.  He has an energetic spirit and I expected him to start dancing from side to side at any moment BUT

It was the mosaic pattern of the stone that made me take pause.

Look closely.  There are hundreds of small round bursts of colour within the solid base colour of the stone. 

Just like a mosaic. Or perhaps you see a pattern similar to when oil contacts water.  It disperses in a circular fashion as each drop of oil lands. 

I would suggest placing this bear in your collection for the unusual colour pattern alone!

If you are looking for an amazing carving you have found it!
