Some of the greatest works of Inuit sculpture almost defy analysis, and sometimes the adjectives themselves seem to contradict one another. Perhaps the same holds true for this bear, as it cannot decide which way is up nor down. The relentless choice between right and wrong that confronts our daily conscience is the leitmotif of this piece.
This carving also carries a lightness, a positivity and a playfulness that is both exciting and alluring to those who see it.
