Inuit art: Walking Bear
Inuit Artist: Quaraq Nungusuitok
Size: 9" long, 4" high, 3" deep
Community: Cape Dorset, NU 3/22
Museum quality Carving! Magnificent Movement!
Quaraq's majestic Walking bear balances on the edge between modern and abstract style.
The long extended front legs, the abnormally long neck and the ill defined claws lean toward abstraction.
However, the realistic facial features and the classic angular proportions of the sculpture are solidly based in the modern style.
Quaraq’s bears flaunt their chiselled facial features.
They move quietly and deliberately. The deep green colour of the stone is adorned with fine white veins that resemble the finest lace.
Quaraq has grown his reputation by inventing the "Nungusuitok" bear.
Without a doubt, "Sleuth* is one of Quaraq's finest signature carvings.
