This two way Dancing bear is able to dance or stand on either of his feet.
This is a miraculous feat of engineering, as far as I'm concerned. Some bears Dance on all four limbs!!!!!!
Any carver who can accomplish this balancing act is a genius.
Ottokie has created this sculpture that not only dances but stands leaning to one side which makes his balancing act even more difficult to achieve.
I am impressed.
AND what I love about this bear is his left paw, which is positioned palm up as if he is carrying a pan of hot pizza!
His exuberance as he leans from side to side may be because he is also singing a peppy little song as he goes about his pizza delivery.
This bear is so well balanced and fluid. His movement and animation is incredible. And his jet black stone interspersed with torqoise and green patches is absolutely electric.
