This is a rare oppurtunity to own one of Nuna Parr's elite bears carved during the mid 2010's. After hearing of Nuna's health issues, it came to my attention that their was a small collection of 2 Nuna Parr bears at the co-op in Kimmurut (where he once traveled to visit family). It was here that he carved out a few beautiful dancing bears that somehow became forgotten. Until now.
This is one of two beautiful classic dancing bears by Nuna Parr from 2010-2015. It is New, never owned previously by any collector. It was litterally sitting in the co-op managers office, was completely forgotten about and not processed to have procured to a gallery down south. (We would have been more than delighted to snatch this beauty up back then)
At the age of 70, Nuna has recently had some health setbacks and is carving less frequently. We cannot predict the future but now we seldom receive his beautiful bears with any regularity.
However, what I can say with confidence, is ALL of Nuna Parr’s famous bears will double or triple in value when he retires. This magnificent beast is no exception.
This bear is the quintessential Nuna Parr Bear.
The movement...dynamic, expressive.
The stone...the finest earthy, layered green serpentine stone.
The finish...smooth, unblemished, polished to a reflective shine. The size..... large, perfectly proportioned.
My Inuit art enthusiasts understand the celebrity that comes with the acquisition of a Nuna Parr Masterpiece Bear.
Simply put, Nuna is the best Inuit Carver of bears in the world! I am not exaggerating. His pieces sell well in the five digit category and are certain investment pieces.
The demand for Nuna Parr bear is on par with the demand for tickets to “Hamilton”.
I didn’t hesitate for a second to purchase this Masterpiece. I know it will command lots of attention and will sell quickly.
This may well be one of your last chances to own one of the most exquisite Nuna Parr carvings I have ever seen. How proud would a company be to have this sculpture in their CEO’s office or in their boardroom? How special would this piece be in your home in the grand foyer or in the centre of the main living space!?
Of course this piece is signed on the bottom by Nuna Parr and comes with the Igloo Tag of Authenticity.
