Inuit art: Walking Bear
Inuit Artist: Tim (Timothy) Pee
Size: 3.5" long, 3" high
Community: Cape Dorset, NU
Just as the name Henry Evaluardjuk became synonymous with wonderful walking bears, Tim Pee's name is eponymous with the sleek, striding variety.
This bear was carved by an artist who loved and knew his subject very well. Despite being carved from a large sized heavy stone, this work has a lightness of spirit. The flawless accuracy, acute lines and atomic proportions elevate Tim Pee to a higher order from most other carvers.
Pee's bears have a sense of elegance and detail that set his carvings at a higher standard from all other walking bears in this class.
Tim Pee's bears are always incredibly graceful and carry a positive and peaceful look.
