As if it wasn't difficult enough to carve a bear that is balancing on one leg, Johnny felt he had to have this spectacular fellow making a hard turn to the left and turning his face up to the sky!

How did he manage the complex contortions and have it balance, too.

This is a unique twist to the usual Dancing bear. 

Papigatook is the right artist to carve such a miracle.

The dark stone couldn't be more opulent.

Johnny Papigatook is unwavering in his commitment to his bears.
