This is an absolutely gorgeous bear from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. It is a community which is quite isolated from the other northern communities. Artists here have a unique style. They focus on creating sculptures to look as real as possible. The stone is rarely polished and they prefer a dry flat finish.
Simon Qammaniq makes beautiful carvings set in their natural environments. This bear is extremely beautiful. The electrifying white stone makes a stunning impression. The proportions are absolutely perfect. I noticed this carving right away when I saw it.
