Salmonie’s dancing bear can hardly contain his joy! With his head flexed backward with snout raised high and both arms stretching toward the heavens, one is immediately captivated by the jubilance of this animated creature.
The vibrant green serpentine stone from which this bear is fashioned is of unequivocal beauty. The variations of hue within the stone creates a mesmerizing ballet of colour. The posture of the bear is dynamic. We fall in love with this creature’s innocent spirit and his bountiful energy.
This is a world class piece of Inuit art by Etulu Salmonie. Lucky would be the person to receive this sculpture as a birthday or graduation gift. Receiving such a sculpture may start a lifelong passion for collecting Inuit art.
This piece is new and perfect. It is signed by the artist and comes with the Igloo tag of authenticity.
