Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Piece!
It is my professional opinion that it is extremely rare to see such deep and uniform black marble used in carving. This is the highest quality premium piece that you will ever see in Inuit art. It is one of the single best representations of a walking bear that I have ever seen.
This Adla bear is a centrepiece for your collection. The crisp lines and smooth curves meld together hand in hand. The polished mirror shine rides the surface of the deep dark musky serpentine stone, bringing the piece to a euphoric level. Deep, inky black stone finished with a pristine crisp mirror shine. Magic and majesty.
You will probably never see the beauty of this black bear again. In the last decade, we have only seen two big black bears like this in our gallery. In addition to the beauty of the piece, add the talent and notoriety of Ashevak Adla. He is one of the world’s top Inuit artists and this man is the very best artist for bear carvings.
Adla’s dancing and walking bears are always in high demand. They sell quickly. This is an exceptionally well made bear. The silky, smooth black stone is mesmerizing.
This sculpture is a “must” for your collection. The proportion, size, colour of the stone, texture; all of these qualities are A-1 in this piece.
