Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Carving!

Note** Dancing bears are extremely difficult to carve. The bear must be able to stand on one foot, two different feet (2 way), one front paw and two feet (3 way) and the ultimate 4 way bear. The 4 way bear can stand on either of its front paws or feet.

Ottokie is a Master carver of dancing bears.

I am so inspired by the artists who have the ability to achieve this feat of engineering!

Ottokie is among the best artists today for carving dancing and walking bears.

His pieces exemplify the spirit of a dancing bear. 

Ottokie is one of those carvers who other carvers turn to for advice and inspiration.
