Noo Atsiaq is know for his bears, the are all different.
This particular one is the best medium size bear we'e seen from Noo in a while.
The curves are spectacular, the polish is exceptional. A real masterpiece.
Even the piece of rock that Noo used for this bear is special, it has the most beautiful veins that one can get.
