This is a stunning and impressive dancing bear by Markosie Papigatok. Markosie is extremely talented for this style of dancing bears and is what his specialty is.
This dancing bear in particular is nice because it is full of life and movement. It is dancing on one foot. The stone and the color are equally gorgeous. I always liked green stone as it adds much electricity to the piece and really makes it stand out. At the same time it creates a strong contrast to its surroundings. With these features, this bear has a striking appearance and will be immediately noticeable at first glance to your audience.
Markoosie Papigatok is also very talented artist and specializes in dancing bears. His style for dancing bears is to accentuate the curves and to use beautiful colorations with the stone. This is what attracts Inuit art enthusiasts to his works. This dancing bear is perfectly balanced, large and impressive. It measures 9.5" tall, 5" wide. This carving is new, signed and purchased directly from the artist. An igloo tag of authenticity is attached.
