This is an immensely powerful big bear by world famous Inuit artist, Kooyoo Peter. Kooyoo Peter is an established, very well known artist and is notably famous for his large, marble walking bears like this one. They have toured several international and domestic exhibitions.
The main attraction of this particular bear is its sheer size and might. It conveys power and might to the audience while maintaining artistic beauty, style and refinement. It is not just a large bear alone, it is also perfectly refined and well proportioned as well as beautifully detailed. There are absolutely no flaws on this bear. The stone is smooth and radiates a gorgeous white.
This sculpture is huge and measures 19" long, 11" tall. This carving is new and purchased directly from the artist.
