Lonny is a realistic style Scenting bear which is a type of Walking bear.
Look at Lonny from behind.
His left leg is balanced on his toes>
In this position, it looks like Lonny has been carved just as he is placing his foot down on the ground.
It isn't common to see a sculpture that has movement carved into it.
It is so exciting when one comes across one like Lonny.
Tony's Walking and Scenting bears are popular with my clientele.
Tony has a definite love for bears.
