Best friends forever!
Do you have memories of a special childhood friend?
The two of you were inseparable. You discovered the world together.
Even now, the memories of this relationship make you smile and perhaps make you a bit sad.
A bit sad because you realize that these innocent childhood relationships are priceless.
I believe these two young bears are best friends playing on the ice, "laughing" and play growling. Perhaps they are practicing their "menacing" sounds and "terrifying" looks.
This piece is nostalgic as it takes you back in time to a different world.
These sweet bears are carved with ivory. Tiulana has lovingly created magnificent mouths. Look at the red colour of the inside of the mouth and the perfect tiny, tiny teeth!
This unusual sculpture is likely bound for a museum one day.
The originality of this piece makes it a spectacular piece of art.
