Inuit art: Scenting Bear
Inuit Artist: Tony Oqutaq
Size: 5" long, 2" wide, 2.5" high
Community: Cape Dorset
This is a beautiful traditional serpentine scenting bear by Tony Oqutaq. The colouring is electric, which is why we liked it. This bear has a wonderful pose as it is sniffing. The movement is gorgeous and was made by a very reputable inuit artist.
Tony is known for his scenting bears. The movements he creates are subtle and very life like.
This carving is new, signed by the artist. An igloo tag of authenticity is attached.
