Beautiful bear from Cape Dorset. Very well balanced.

Abe Simionie (1977 - )
Abe’s father is Simigak Simionie, he was a carving packer at the Cape Dorset Co-op for thirty years.
Abe's uncles, Kanaginak Pootoogook and Ninogiok Pudlat, were his greatest influences, but it wasn’t until Abe began to carve with Moe Pootoogook, that he knew he would follow in his uncles' footsteps. Abe’s favourite subject is bears.
Besides carving, Abe enjoys hunting and fishing.
