This is a series of electrifying white polar bear Inuit sculpture by Internationally renowned Inuit artist Lew Phillip from Iqaluit.
This Walking Bear, like all of Lew's bears is proportioned perfectly to the actual movements of a real bear. It is quite large.
What also draws me to this bear is the beautiful marble finish.
