Inuit art: Dancing hare
Inuit Artist: Pits Qimirpik
Size: 5" high, 4" wide

With his recent conceptualizations of the dancing hare, Qimirpik proved himself to be not only a gifted and visionary sculptor but also a brilliant craftsman.
This is a beautifully proportioned arctic hare done in a gorgeous jet black stone. It has fantastic dancing moves.
This is one of the best dancing hares we've seen in awhile. It has a strong disposition, colorful movement and beautiful detail.

Comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity). The carving is completely perfect!
