Allan Sheutiapik understands how to build a bear.
Take one ample backside, add muscular legs. Make the back legs longer than the front.
Attach a square muzzle to a box-shaped skull. Make the face dangerous but friendly at the same time.
Now comes THE most important part.
The bear could be dancing, or striding, or just standing still. But delight leads us to the essence of the bear. We see its sense of humor, its courageous heart and rambling soul.
Allan's bears always have a je ne sais quoi; a quality that cannot be described or named easily.
I always try to have Sheutiapik carvings on hand for my clients. People are enthralled by their physical presence and their happy countenance.
