This walking bear is the ultimate demonstration of Tim Pee's interest; the visages are highly realistic. Each of his bears are remarkable on their own; the assemblage is quite extraordinary, in harmony with the crisp and flawless proportions.
This carving carries a lightness of spirit. Tim Pee's flawless accuracy, acute lines and atomic proportions elevate him to a higher order from most other carvers.
Tim Pee's bears have a sense of intricacy and beauty that set this bear at a higher standard from most walking bears in this class. This bear in particular has a very unique and alluring colouring.
A common trade-mark of Pee's bears is the incredibly graceful, positive and peaceful atmosphere his carvings always have. These details give a calm and happy energy to any room his work is placed in.
