I love the simplicity and innocence of this Louie Makittuq carving.
This dark green bear has all the character and spirit of a larger piece but on a smaller scale.
So many of us are drawn to miniatures. We are fascinated by how an artist can create something so small and be so accurate.
This is not a miniature but there is something about its small stature that is appealing.
Cradling it in your hand is comforting.
This piece is beautifully carved. The stone is cool and smooth to the touch.
