This immensely powerful big bear by world famous Inuit artist, Kooyoo Peter has the elegance and grace unlike any other piece. Kooyoo Peter is an established, very well known artist and is notably famous for his large walking bears like this one. They have toured several international and domestic exhibitions.
The highlight of this piece is exclaimed to the stunning white marble stone setting. This establishes a gateway to a euphoric dynamic where the sculpture is completed to a degree of perfection rarely ever seen.
The main attraction of this particular bear is its sheer size, might and a beautiful colour. This is not just a large bear, it is also perfectly refined and well proportioned as well as beautifully detailed. The stone is smooth and radiates a gorgeous green.
