Inuit art: Walking Bear
Inuit Artist: Tim (Timothy) Pee
Size: 8.5" long, 5.5" high, 3" wide
Community: Cape Dorset
Just as the name Henry Evaluardjuk became synonymous with wonderful walking bears, Tim Pee's name is eponymous with the sleek, striding variety.
This bear was obviously carved by an artist who carefully observed the animal subjects and Loved them. Despite being carved from a large sized, heavy stone, the work has a lightness of spirit. His flawless accuracy, acute lines and atomic proportions elevates Tim Pee to a higher order from most other carvers.
Pee's bears have a sense of refinement and detail that is set to a higher standard from all other walking bears in this class.
His bears are always incredibly graceful (a trade mark of Tim Pee's bears) and have a positive peaceful look.
The reflection, polish and shine are divine. The proportions are perfect and very life like.
