This is a piece that belongs in a high end art collection or a museum.
This bear is the epitome of Noo Atsiaq bears. it conveys grace, beauty, power and finesse... AND I feel extremely lucky to have gotten my hands on this piece. Moreover, the gorgeous brown stone lights up the entire room when put under a spot light. The beautiful rivers and grains in the stone extenuate this bear. The gorgeous brown stone also gives it a beautiful elegance that this impressive sized bear deserves to have.
It is the last of high end dancing bear pieces. The body, proportions and movement are of epic statutes.
The curves and proportions are all equally done with precision and refinement. It is certainly a masterpiece.
Noo Atsiaq was one of the few premier Inuit artists who did dancing bears on a large scale. It is a huge loss to the inuit art world of his passing away.
Noo Atsiaq was born in Iqaluit (Frobisher Bay), Nunavut and now lives and carves in Cape Dorset, the capital of Inuit art. His Parents are Alashua Atsiaq and Piulia Pudlalik Atsiaq. Noo has been carving since he was a young kid. He was initially taught by watching other carvers. His favorite subject is bears, dancing, diving and walking. Sculptures by Noo Atsiaq are well known and thought after in the Inuit art collectors world. He also occasionally carved people and caribou.
