Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Isaaci Petaulassie
Size: 14" tall, 9" wide, 6" deep. Weight: 15 lbs
Community: Cape Dorset
Stone: Serpentine (fantastic brown)
Strikingly beautiful brown serpentine. Big sculptures in this color are hard to find, they have an extra depth and beauty.
Isaaci Petaulassie is world renown for his dancing bears. He spends much time perfecting the shape and movement of his bears in order to achieve full movement and strong dynamic. This bear is of no exception as it has a very fluid flow throughout the stone.
It is polished to a mirror shine and has all the refinement that you would expect from a paramount piece like this.
The sculpture is signed by the artist and comes with igloo tag.
