Markoosie is a genius!

He has carved a Dancing bear that is marching!

The bear's right knee is drawn up to hip level. You can imagine him marching formation on the parade ground.

The arm position is interesting.  The bear's shoulders are pulled back, the arms are extended back and the front paws are flexed acutely at the wrists.  The bear is at attention.

The stance is reminiscent of the drum major or leader of a marching band.

Such an imaginative artist.

Such a fantastic sculpture.

Markoosie never fails us.

Can you imagine how ecstatic you would be if you received this carving as a gift?
