This is a brilliant Johnny Manning dancing bear done in a rare coloured deep black stone. The nicest bears I have seen in a long time and the nicest bear i have ever seen him make period.
Johnny Manning has an amazing eye for lines, curvatures and proportions, continuously pushing the envelope for perfection. This stunning bear is no different as every attribute about it is perfect, which makes it a true gallery / exhibition piece.
