An immensely powerful bear with cub by world famous Inuit artist, Kooyoo Peter. Kooyoo Peter is an established, very well known artist and is notably famous for his large walking bears like this one. They have toured several international and domestic exhibitions.
The main attraction of this particular bear is its velvety smooth brownish stone depicting a Mother and cub. The color is absolutely gorgeous. This is not just a large bear, it is also perfectly refined and well proportioned as well as beautifully detailed.
The sculpture is new. Comes with igloo tag, signed by the artist.
