Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Carving!
Note** Dancing bears are extremely difficult to carve. The bear must be able to stand on one foot, two different feet (2 way), one front paw and two feet (3 way) and the ultimate 4 way bear. The 4 way bear can stand on either of its front paws or feet.
Ottokie is a Master carver of dancing bears.
I am so inspired by the artists who have the ability to achieve this feat of engineering!
Deep Dive is an amazing fellow.
He is a large bear with the biggest grin on his face.
Don't you think he is showing off?
His chin is almost on his foot as he balances on one leg in a deep dive posture.
The soft green color stone is comforting. You can feel yourself walking in the woods, connecting with nature when you see this color.
Deep Dive possesses a magnetic personality. You want to be in his presence all the time.
Ottokie is among the best artists today for carving dancing and walking bears.
His pieces exemplify the spirit of a dancing bear.
Ottokie is one of those carvers who other carvers turn to for advice and inspiration.
