Masterpiece Sculpture! Fantastic Movement!
In my 15 years of being an Inuit art curator, I have seldom seen a four way Dancing bear.
Because they are challenging to carve, they are also challenging to locate for purchase.
The artist who can achieve this level of carving is a Master carver.
Etulu's pure black polar bear is diving forward onto his front paws and then flipping back onto his feet like a breakdancer.
Take a long look at all the pictures. This bear is capable of balancing on each of its paws with really is an engineering miracle.
This agile polar bear is sublime. His happiness is contagious.
Etulu is an especially skilled carver to be able to sculpt this awe inspiring bear.
