Bill Nasogaluak was Walker's (Auction House) featured artist for their annual Inuit art auction of November 2017.
This is a gorgeous Nasogaluak bear carved in an exquisite and unique Alabaster stone.
The chic charcoal white finish gives this piece a luminescent glow.
Nasogaluk’s bears are always striding with purpose, perhaps in search of food. His details and proportions are perfect. Nasogaluak’s bears tend to be sleek and well muscled.
I love this classic pose of a swimming bear. It is the quintessential Canadian polar bear pose.
How often have you seen a polar bear swimming through the Arctic water with only neck and head exposed?! This is the ultimate in Canadian sculpture.
Nasogaluak loves to use stone that is unique either in colour or texture.
Bill's Masterpiece Walking Bear. in orange.
Our bear is sleek and smooth and exotically coloured. He is scenting the air. Curious and alert.
Avid Inuit art collectors know that the uniqueness of the stone of their carvings will elevate the prestige of their collection.
