People never seem to tire of Black bears.
Some search for the quintessential jet black marble bear carving.
Others prefer black marble combined with colourful veining or speckles.
We love black bears who dance and black bears who walk.
The size of the bear is important to some.
Small bears, medium bears, large bears and bears so large they are statues.
Tuk Nuna has a long list of credentials and adulations.
He understands the true nature of the bear.
This black bear is gently coloured with veins and speckles.
He is a chunky, muscular creature with wide innocent open eyes.
I can see him “lumber” across the page; he may be foraging for berries or simply enjoying the sun.
Powerful Bear is a large bear with considerable mass but his nature is sweet and winsome. Nuna has contoured the body with the rounded softness of a Teddy bear.
This would be the ideal bear for the person in your life who loves Rupert the Bear, Bernstein Bears or Winnie the Pooh.
But really, anyone will fall in love with this carving’s joyful spirit.
