This is beautiful and lively bear cub with one paw up (a very rare find by Nuna Parr!).
The color is gorgeous lighter green. It is polished to perfection.
Slowly, as Nuna Parr continues to age into his 70's, his bears are becoming less and less frequent. His wife is currently having health issues these last few months, so his famous bears have been few and far between. Nuna is the most famous active Inuit artist in the world for bears.
What I took noticed with this bear are the expressions on its face. For one reason or another, probably by accident, this is the nicest expression I have ever seen on any of Nuna Parr's bears. The symmetry of the eyes brings everything in perfect balance with this piece.
A centerpiece for our gallery.
