Here is a fun fact about Allan Sheutiapik from Iqaluit:
Several years ago, I sold one of his beautiful bears to a producer for the show "Madam Secretary" on CBS. His bear can be found in several episodes.
Pretty cool I thought.
This is a gorgeous carving depicting a bear in its natural habitat. This bear is gracefully carved in the actions of catching a Salmon fish. This is a very rare find and Allan is the only carver who does this subject. It's hard to carve both bear and fish together.
I am really attracted to the dark green stone that this bear is made in. It is very illuminating and warm to the eye. It is beautiful, interesting, and a scene from a wild life!
A perfect centerpiece for your collection. Signed by the artist, comes with igloo tag.
