Description: Bears: hunting, diving, dancing and swimming, are an integral part of the arctic landscape and are intricately woven into the lives and lore of the Inuit people. There doesn't exist a type of stone that doesn't invite the artist to coax a bear from it and Taqialiq has done so here. The gorgeous, mottled serpentine infuses and decorates this dancer with rhythm and joy.
