This is an incredible dancing bear by none other - World Famous Nuna Parr. I gravitated to this one right away because of the gorgeous eyes which are inlayed (made from caribou bone), and also the motion and fluidity of this spirit bear is full of life and balance.
Regarding the eyes, never has Nuna Parr ever attempted this style before. That is what makes this bear so special. It is very original from his other bears. Furthermore, the movement in general is spectacular. its fluid like motion really makes this a special piece by Canada's most famous artist.
The dark stone with a slight taint of green stone is brilliant and allows for a gorgeous contrast amongst its surroundings. Its is so well polished to a reflective shine.
These are the attributes which caught my eye regarding this bear and is why I did not hesitate on it.
Bears by Nuna Parr are very hard to get, Inuit art galleries line up to get one or two. This is because Nuna is the most famous Inuit artist in the world for bears .
This Dancing Bear is both elegant and impressive! A center piece for any art gallery.
For the Inuit art enthusiast, I do not need to explain the notoriety that comes with owning a Nuna Parr Bear. Pure and simple, he is the best Inuit artist in the world for Bears. His pieces sell well into the five digit category. The demand for a Nuna bears is pretty much on par with getting a pair of tickets to the Book Of Moron Broadway show.
When I am lucky enough to get the chance to buy one, there is absolutely no hesitation on my side. This is because I know it will sell fast.
The bear is signed and comes with igloo tag.
