This is an outstanding grey Scenting Bear by master Inuit artist Esau (Esa) Kripanik from igloolik. Signed by the artist.
It is an absolutely gorgeous bear from a very remote Inuit community called Igloolik. It is a community which is very isolated from the other northern communities. Artists here have a unique style. They focus on creating sculptures to look as real as possible. The stone is rarely polished and they prefer a dry flat finish.
What makes sculptures by Esa Kripanik so different is engravings that the artist often carves on the sides.
There is a beautiful arctic narwhal on the left side of the bear and spectacular beluga whale on the other side.
The carving is completely perfect, brand new! We buy directly from the artist therefore can offer you better deals.
