Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Carving!

Every time I see a Mother and Cub piece, my heart melts.

The sacred relationship between Mother and Child has been a central theme in art history for centuries.

I find Mother and Cub Polar bear carvings especially endearing because the maternal instinct is so primal that even the fiercest mammal on earth (the polar bear) would relinquish her life to save her cub.

In this scene, Nuyalia’s Mother bear is using her large mass to snuggle with her cub with the purpose of comforting him but urging him forward toward home.

Snugglers  opulent warm vanilla stone glows in the light.

There is no harsh brilliance here only a cool smooth refinement that keeps you touching the stone repeatedly.

This art piece is an ample size.

This is a departure from the medium sized dancing and walking bears that Nuyalia usually carves..

I think that most would agree that the larger carvings are more enticing.

They offer opportunities (eg. fastidious details, showcasing spectacular stone) that the smaller carvings cannot simply because they have much less surface area to play with.

Nuyalia is famous for his bears, rivaling the great Master carvers Nuna Parr and Joe Kavik..

As for collectors, the rarity of the larger size combined with the poignant Mother and Cub subject makes this sculpture a must have for your art collection.
