This is a fine example of Tunillie verging on the abstract. His road towards abstraction is via the streamlining of body and shape while always maintaining the essential bearlike character of the object; its power, its ferocity, its bulk. When working on a small scale, Tunillie achieves this by exaggerating the bulkiness of the forms.

The elongated neck, compressing the torso into the realm of abstract, is a deliberate exaggeration by the artist to create further exhilaration. 

This is also a rather large piece, a beautiful showcase for any room. It undoubtedly deserves its own podium or table.
