Inuit Artist: Ottokie Samayualie
Size: 14.5" across (13" horizontal), 8" wide, 7" deep. 20 lbs

Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
Note** It is extremely difficult for an artist to carve a 3-way dancing bear. Ottokie is a Master carver of these rare 3-way bears. The last time we received a beautiful bear like this, was from Esau Kripanik over 5 years ago.
Barney can dance on either foot and his right paw.
His movements and animation are incredible.
In addition, Barney's dark stone is mirror-like and absolutely electrifying.
This is one of our favorite dancing bears in the gallery.
I never hesitate to acquire his pieces because they are perfectly carved.
