This is a splendid dancing bear with beautiful proportions and lines. Ottokie is one of several carvers in Cape Dorset who like to create dancing bears. He is one of the better artists for dancing bears as his seem to have much life and movement to them. Ottokie rarely carves from marble, he usually works with traditional serpentine. A rare find! 

This piece is very vibrant and very well polished to a mirror shine. Interesting sitting position (the bear is playing)
