This is a beautifully proportioned arctic hare done in a gorgeous jet black stone. It has fantastic dancing moves. The carving has a good mass to it, weights almost 4 lbs (the hare is chubby)
This is one of the best dancing hares we've seen in awhile. It has a strong disposition, colorful movement and beautiful detail.
