Inuit art: Walking Bear
Inuit Artist: Malitu Akesuk

Vanilla Bean is a juvenile Polar bear practicing his ice walking.
It's tricky keeping your balance on the uneven, slippery surface.
He keeps his head up so he can also test his ability to sniff the air and detect food and his Mom.
An adult Polar bear can pick up scent miles away!
Malitu's Vanilla Bear will grow into a a large, sturdy Polar bear.
I particularly love the chunkiness of Malitu's carving, expressing the sheer mass of this young bear.
Vanilla Bean would be the perfect gift for a young person who loves animals.
