With Walking bears, I find it's often all in the haunches!
Observe the rear photo of Bowie's hind end!
Muscular thick legs that extend into a wide and powerful backside.
This hind end is where Bowie's legs join his pelvis with a ball joint that allows him to run, jump and spring onto his prey.
A bear is nothing without his powerfully built legs and haunches.
Johnny has used his carver's "paintbrush" to give Bowie a spectacular velvet deep green colour embellished with watery blue turquoise.
The pattern of turquoise accents Bowie's hind end.
Bowie is an impressive Walking bear who would love to walk into your life.
