Allan's animated scenes of the bear grabbing the fish identify the rugged realities of mammal habitat of the Canadian Arctic.
This is a gorgeous carving depicting a bear in its natural habitat. This bear is gracefully carved in the actions of catching a Salmon fish. This is a very rare find and Allan is the only carver who does this subject. It's hard to carve both bear and fish together.
I am really attracted to the pale green stone that this bear is made in. It is very illuminating and warm to the eye. It is beautiful, interesting, and a scene from a wild life!
The size is large, it's a big and happy bear. A perfect centre piece for your collection.
