Inuit art: 3 Way Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Isaaci Petaulassie
Size: 4" across, 3" wide
Community: Cape Dorset, NU 10/22
CHRISTMAS is coming sooner than you think!
Moe has given us a unique treasure.
Charles is a small three way Dancing bear.
I have looked through our archive and Moe rarely carves a three way so small!
This means that the bear can be balanced on three out of their four limbs.
Not only is this a very difficult position for the artist to carve, when Charles is balanced on his left paw in the Diving position, most of his body mass is lateral to his arm.
This is an unbelievable accomplishment for Pootoogook.
Balancing on a front paw requires incredible strength, power and awareness of one's body in space.
