This Louie Uttaq Polar bear is standing with his feet firmly planted, like the roots of an ancient tree.

This is a very common posture for a Polar bear.  They often stand to survey the scene or make themselves larger in appearance to their foe. 

Louie's bear is proud and majestic. 

He has nobility and a strong, intelligent face.

This is a beautiful rendition of a Gjoa Haven bear sculpture.

This  carving is raw and somewhat primitive.  

Louie understands and loves the essence of the Polar bear. This connection to the animal comes from years of studying and observing the creature in order to faithfully reproduce its nature and spirit.

Uttaq is one of Gjoa Haven's most talented and imaginative artists. 

This would be a timeless piece of Gjoa Haven art history for your collection.
