There is something so appealing about Diving bears.
Balancing on a front paw requires incredible strength, power and awareness of one's body in space.
So immediately, I view all Diving bears as superb athletes.
Now add in the small factor.
A small, athletic Diving bear is enchanting especially when he is carved in black.
The black colour enhances all the lines of the piece and also creates mystery.
Spunky is awesome.
Meaning that he is an inspiration.
And he does it all with a big grin on his face.
