Some of the greatest works of Inuit sculptures defy analysis. Sometimes adjectives that can be used actually seem to contradict one another. How can a sculpture have a commanding presence and yet also be genuinely winsome? How can a work be quirkily naive and yet highly refined? How can a sculpture be truly monumental and yet so embraceable? This masterpiece has all of these qualities and more to offer.
This is a gorgeous sculpture with perfectly balanced positions; diving and dancing. Fantastic moves and perfect proportions. These are what make Isaaci Petaulassie world famous for his bears.
Petaulassie has a very special carving style. He gives great attention to dancing moves and curves and to facial features as well. This carving is new. An igloo tag of authenticity is attached.
The sculpture is signed by the artist.
