This is a very special HUGE and HEAVY white marble walking bear by Noo Atsiaq from Cape Dorset.
Will surely be a centre piece of your art collection!
There are only about three or four active carvers in Cape Dorset who can create large bears. Noo is one of them. Carving big sculptures takes lots of experience and talent, it is also very physically challenging because of the weight of the rock.
This stunning Inuit carving comes with an Igloo Tag (Certified of Authenticity). Beautiful well proportioned bear. Gorgeous white!
