By now, I think that you probably know that I love the dark forest green + torquoise colour stone combination .
Check box 1.
Then, I appreciate the kind of talent and experience that allows Abraham to carve this incredibly strong Diving bear.
Popeye is carrying his entire weight on one arm.
Incredible strength and perfect form.
Check box 2.
This fantastic creature is balancing on his front paw AND at the same time, he is holding his body in a very lateral position.
Many Diving bears hold their bodies parallel to the floor.
Abraham Simeonie is one of my favorite carvers of small Dancing and Diving bears.
Small bears are a never fail gift for any occasion.
