This is a rare occasion where Nuna Parr has crafted his masterpiece from a slate of white marble stone. This is a rare breed of carving made from this divine stone, and it will be the last time you ever see Nuna Parr do a bear in this color. This is because it is extremely dense stone, very difficult to carve with and is only used when the traditional green serpentine stones are not readily available.
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 electric stone opulates and punctuates the piece into a level of surreal triumphed.
This is a gorgeous bear. It is a classic Nuna Parr in all senses of the word. 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 finish is smooth and well polished - to a reflective shine. The size is large not only in height, but length as well.
Nice bears like this by Nuna Parr are very hard to get, Inuit art galleries line up to get one or two. This is because Nuna is the most famous Inuit artist in the world for bears .
For the Inuit art enthusiast, I do not need to explain the notoriety that comes with owning a Nuna Parr Bear. Pure and simple, he is the best Inuit artist in the world for Bears. His pieces sell well into the five digit category. The demand for a Nuna bears is pretty much on par with getting a pair of tickets to the Book Of Mormon Broadway show.
