Provenance: A rare moment where Markosie got his hands on this beautiful black marble stone from Northern Quebec. This is a premium bear. A very rare find and one of the best examples and representations of his works.

**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.

When a beloved Inuit carver is able to experiment with his medium, the result can be glorious!

Markosie offers a small group of his wildly popular Dancing bears carved in an exotic warm black serpentine stone.

The inky blackness of this exclusive stone, allows the light to cast a spell as if the sun and the heavens have conspired to cloak Dancing bear in eternal light.


I am always excited to present these celebrated sculptures to my clients.
