Markoosie's Nate is the poster child for all voluptuous Dancing bears!
Nate is more ample in size as he prepares to hibernate,
When he emerges in the spring, Nate's physique will be lean as he will have used up his stored body fat for calories and heat over the cold Arctic winter.
I am enthralled with Dancing bears who have a divine countenance.
With their noses pointing straight up to the heavens, they appear to be communing with a higher power.
Markoosie is high up on my list of favourite bear carvers.
His Dancing bears are consistent in their meticulous execution and charming personalities.
Whether you lean toward traditional Inuit carvings or welcome a more modern silhouette, these sweet bears never fail to bewitch and warm our hearts.
