MASTERPIECE CARVING & INVESTMENT PIECE
Provenance June 2021: THIS ARCHING BACK DANCING BEAR IS THE CARVING THAT HAS MADE NUNA PARR THE MOST FAMOUS INUIT ARTIST IN THE WORLD -
Now extremely rare, I have seen maybe one or two arching back bears like this one in the last 10 years. This carving style has made Nuna Parr one of the top 5 Elite Master Carvers in Canadian History.
It has been over a year since Nuna last carved. Will this bear be the last one? Maybe.... maybe not. But no regrets - that's how I go about my life. Don't hesitate. This bear will be worth over 6 figures in the very near future.
Without question, this arching back dancing bear is THE quintessential Nuna Parr Dancing Bear.
Over the past ten years, I have seen dozens of Nuna Parr bears, some of which have been exquisitely spectacular.
Believe me when I say .... every aspect, every detail of this carving is ICONIC.
The arching back.
The dignified demeanor.
The grace and athleticism of the “dance”.
The gleaming flawless stone.
This piece takes my breath away.
Until recently, I hadn’t allowed myself to hope for another Nuna Parr dancing bear to cross my path.
Three years ago, I purchased a group of three Nuna Parr bears which were unrivalled by any of his previous carvings. My clever clients purchased all three bears within a few days.
I know this beauty will not go unclaimed for long. Many of my clients call and ask me “When will you be receiving another Nuna bear?”
Sadly, Nuna has been carving with less frequency over the past two years.
I am so thrilled to have this Masterpiece of Masterpiece carvings. I struggled with the decision as to whether I should keep this piece for my private collection.
Do NOT miss this chance to have this glorious bear as the showcase carving in your collection. You will be the envy of envy of many collectors if this piece becomes yours. Its majesty will give you a lifetime of joy.
Nuna has signed this bear and it comes with the Certificate Tag of authenticity.
We promise to send you only good things
