Beautiful and rare fluid dancing bear by famous Nuna Parr.
In this enigmatic work, Parr achieves the spiritedness of the dancing bear through delicate balance, crisp lines and an overall fluidity that sparks an electric vibrance from head to toe.
Justly admired for their graceful elegance and acute disposition, Parr's works are not solely known for their "robust" content. Although he is famously recognized for his grand-esque bears, it is the finesse and detail that prevail the sometimes overbearing large mass of stone. It is this delicate balance that made Nuna Parr one of the most recognized inuit artists internationally.
This beautiful and poignent sculpture portrays a spirit bear. Parr eloquently captures the bears celebratory and jolly mood almost through posture alone, conveyed by means of the sparest and subtlest of undulating sculptural forms.
