A rare find from Markosie - a Diving bear. Markosie is mostly known for his dancing bears, but this time he created a fantastic diving one. Beautiful masterpiec from one of the best carvers in Cape Dorset for bears.

This particular bear is very chubby and heavy. A big piece!

Markosie learned carving by watching other artists in the community. He started  carving as a teenager. His mother, Komajuk Tunnillie, and grandparents Tayaraq and Qavaroak (Kabubuwa) Tunnillie, were all accomplished carvers in Cape Dorset. Markosie likes to make bears. His bears are always beautifully chubby and have detailed facial features.
