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. 

The sculpture is signed by the artist.
