Small bears are one of the quintessential pieces of Inuit art.
People are drawn to “small” objects, perhaps as a subconscious return to the innocence of childhood.
Small bears, in particular, are enchanting. I never have enough of them on hand for my clients.
Their spirit is all-encompassing. Such a small being provides so much joie de vivre.
This sweet bear is demure and graceful. Her stone is rich, unique and bewitching. Sometimes, as in this case, the phenomenal stone colour is the star of the show.
I believe the small bear is the most sought-after carving for gifting.
Because of their extreme affordability, small bears are often purchased in pairs.
What could be more joyous than two small bears dancing together?!
