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 vibrancy from head to toe.
This stone emulates and defines serpentine at its finest. The visage of green opulates and punctuates the piece into a level of surreal triumphed.
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.
The stoic and opulent pallid stone lends itself to the terse lines and flawless symmetry. This howls to the conclusion of a masterpiece with bounteous sashay and audacity. The beautiful stone and fluid movements are what immediately caught my eye.
This piece in particular features everything that Nuna Parr is so famous for. The movement is quintessentially dynamic and expressive.The stone is a deep beautiful green and black. The finish is smooth and well polished - to a reflective shine. The size is large not only in height, but length as well.
