Small bears are one of THE quintessential pieces of Inuit art.
People are drawn to “small” objects, perhaps as a subconscious return to the innocence of childhood.
Small bears, in particular, are enchanting. I never have enough of them on hand for my clients.
Their spirit is all encompassing. Such a small being provides so much joie de vivre.
This particular bear emanates energy and innocence. Its posture is comical and yet it commands respect.
I believe the small bear is the most sought after carving for gifting. Because of their extreme affordability, they are often purchased in multiples. What could be more joyous than two small bears dancing together!
