Simon is a specialist in miniature polar bears carved from ivory.
Tiny carvings were the norm in the early part of the 20th century when shipping was sporadic and expensive.
I love the vintage feel of Diamond Girl.
It is the innocence of this bear and its perfect detail which makes its a gem.black eyes and button of a nose.
Kudlistiak’s treatment of the effervescent white Ivory is brilliant.
Placing the bear on the rock cliff gives the carving presence and complexity.
Diamond Girl would be a very special spontaneous gift.
