When a small bear is carved in a deep, dark colour, magic happens!

Every curve is exaggerated. 

Each pointed nose becomes even more pointed. 

Look at Gatsby's front paws. 

See how each claw stands out against the background.

Now look at his right leg and his back.

Doesn't Gatsby look like a dancing shadow?    

Gatsby's silhouette is flamboyant and brimming with exuberant joy as he dances into the sunset. 

Are you ready to welcome Gatsby into your home?
