This is an adorable lying bear with the innocence of a dolphin.
You watch him as he lumbers forward. Every step of his massive paws demands energy and therefore calories.
He is hunting, scenting with his nose. He can detect his prey a kilometre away.
Suqsluq often connects the upper and lower teeth of his bears which intensifies their ferocity. This polar bear uses his sneering lips, bared fangs and transfixing eyes to intimidate his prey.
Suqsluq best known for his polar bears. Inuit art enthusiasts around the globe adore his fastidiously detailed work.
Joseph has the rare ability to carve movement into his carvings. Gjoa Haven artists honour the natural spirit of their animal subjects and are unique in their depiction of life.
Every collection should have at least one polar bear carving. Inuit art enthusiasts cherish their “special” polar bear.
Joseph’s bear is a MUST for a magical and well rounded collection.
