Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Johnny Manning

Done in a smooth and refined marble stone, Manning’s bear is perfection! His raw savagery contrasts his endearing spirited dance step and we can’t help falling in love with this delightful creature.
Of course the polar bear must be white but not just any white! Manning has chosen an electrifying white marble stone transfused with veins of soft gray. This combination of marble strengthens the carving. There is a surreal flow of electrical power seeping through this bear’s limbs as he balances on one foot.
This carving is signed by the artist and comes with the Igloo Tag of authenticity.
