Very rare sculpture - mother bear and her cub!

Bear families don't get carved that often, this is the first one we've seen from Johnassie.
He is more known for single walking bears with teeth.
Here you have Johnassie's signature bear with teeth with an added bonus - a baby on the back.
Beautiful sculpture! 
Great wedding gift idea!
