This is an unusual occasion where Nuna Parr has crafted a dancing walrus masterpiece and moreover, done in a slate of black marble stone. Nuna Parr has been straying from his usual medium of crafting bear sculptures.
In this enigmatic work, Parr achieves the spiritedness of the dancing walrus through delicate balance, crisp lines and an overall fluidity that sparks an electric vibrancy from head to toe.
This stone emulates and defines serpentine at its finest. The visage of dark stone punctuates the piece into a level of surreal triumph.
This is a gorgeous dark dancing walrus. The beautiful stone and fluid movements are what immediately caught my eye.
This piece in particular features everything that Nuna Parr is so famous for. The movement is quintessentially dynamic and expressive, the stone is a deep striking black, the finish is smooth and well polished and the size is large not only in height, but in length as well.
Spectacular pieces like this by Nuna Parr are very difficult to obtain, Inuit art galleries line up to get one or two. This is because Parr is the most famous Inuit artist in the world.
For the Inuit art enthusiasts, I do not need to explain the notoriety that comes with owning a Nuna Parr bear. His pieces sell well into the five digit category. The demand for Nuna Parr's pieces are pretty much on par with getting a pair of tickets to The Book of Mormon 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. This is your chance to own one of his fine pieces. We buy directly from Parr and can offer you a much better deal than most other galleries.
This walrus is signed and comes with an igloo tag.
