**The bear is so perfect, I could't decide which pictures to use. These rich black Markosie Dancing bears are an unexpected rarity.
Papigatook procured a limited quantity of dark serpentine stone to carve an exclusive selection of his popular Dancing bears.
The outcome is a gentle and joyous bear spirit whose velvety silhouette is striking and intoxicating.
No one choreographs small Dancing Bears like Markosie Papigatook. Under his tutelage, these captivating creatures whirl and spin with wild abandon.
Their spirited nature is infectious. It is impossible to look at these winsome bears and feel unhappy. Somehow these petite carvings give us permission to shed our reserve and simply enjoy the moment.
Papigatook’s Dancing Bears would be the ideal choice as a gift to a novice collector.
These perfect sculptures adapt to either traditional or modern room design, they take up minimal “shelf” space, and the return on this small investment is a lifetime of joy and endless smiles.
The carving comes with the Igloo Tag of authenticity.
