Quite frankly, when I first saw this piece, my heart immediately skipped a beat.
Here is a Mother bear on her back letting her cubs climb all over her, tumbling and playing.
A Mother's love.
In this sublime setting of electric black marble stone, Ottokie Aningminuq has carved an exquisite mother and bear cubs.
Ottokie is a carver with extraordinary carving talent which he carries out with bravado.
Not only is this work exceptional in its degree of openwork carving and detail, it is also highly expressive and energetic.
Angular, quietly expressive in movement as well as in facial features, contemplative – these are all typical attributes of Ottokie Aningminuq's work.
Can you imagine receiving this sculpture if you have children or grandchildren?
