Joanie Ragee is a very well established artist and is recognized internationally for his bears. It's very rare that you see a walking bear from him, he is more known for his dancing bears. Besides being a very unique subject for Joanie, this bear has another great feature - it's gorgeous jet black color. Black is our favourite color for Inuit sculptures. Black bears have a very special deep polish and shine, they make a statement.
