Note** It is extremely hard for an artist to carve a 4-way dancing bear. Ottokie is a Master carver of these rare 4 way bears. The last time we received a beautiful 4 way bear like this, was 5 years ago from artist Esau Kripanik.

This bear is so well balanced and fluid. It can dance on either foot and both paws. The movement and animation are incredible. Moreover, the jet black stone is mirror like. It is absolutely electrifying. This is one of our favorite dancing bears in the gallery.

Ottokie is among the best artists today for carving  dancing and walking bears. His pieces have so much flow and movement to them and really exemplify the spirit of a dancing bear. I never hesitate to acquire his pieces as they are all exuberantly carved to perfection.

This is a large-sized bear and the marble stone is absolutely radiant and warm. The dynamics and movement of this piece are what encompass absolute perfection within the realm of a dancing bear.
