Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Mosesee Pootoogook
Size: 9" tall, 5" wide, 3" deep
Community: Cape Dorset, NU 21
Moe has carved this dignified and gentlemanly Dancer who is clearly offering his left arm to his dance partner as they begin their waltz.
As you look at each view of this bear, can't you see him guiding his invisible dance partner through the steps of this classic ballroom dance?
The polished rich colour of the stone conveys a formality to the piece.
The Slow Waltz is the most romantic of the Ballroom Dances and like the dance, our bear is soft, and round and flowing in his movements.
