Johnassie's bears are some of the finest walking bears I have ever seen in this size and class. Johnassie Ippak is a very talented and established artist.

Bears with teeth are much more difficult for an artist to do as opposed to ones without. 

This carving is new and purchased directly from the artist.
Signed on the bottom in Inuktitut, comes with igloo tag.
