Inuit art: Dancing Bear
Inuit Artist: Adamie Mathewsie
Size: 3" tall, 2.5" wide
Community: Cape Dorset, NU 7/22
This three inch Dancing bear is leaning way over to the left as he balances on his left foot.
Do you realize that with Teeter, Adamie is showing off his incredible talent as a carver?
A bit of bragging, perhaps.
He is entitled to be proud of his bear.
Dancing carvings must be balanced so they do not fall over.
Can you imagine how difficult it is to balance a piece on one foot?
Now imagine the bear balancing on one foot, the other foot, one paw and now the other paw.
Teeter is a small miracle.
