This two way dancing bear may be small but he has the bravado of his larger cousins.
His long gangly arms are thrown up to the sky in a hallelujah salute.
His snout is long, almost like a bird's beak.
I love his pudgy tummy.
He has a unique physique. He marches or "dances" to the beat of his own drum.
This Pootoogook bear can "dance" or stand on either of his feet. It takes talent and experience to be able to carve this style of bear.
Mosesee is one of the carvers I turn to when I am looking for uniqueand high quality carvings for my clients. The colour of the stone is dark and rich with a sprinkling of torquoise and a touch of light green. I love this colour combination.
Pootoogook has made this bear beautiful, joyful and endearing.
He is waiting for a home in your collection.
