Markosie Papigatok's Dancing Bears are adored for their playfulness and their athletic prowess.
Some of his bears seem to be practising martial arts.
This bear is carved with a stone that is forest green with yellow and black flecks. It is a complex and pleasing combination of colours. I can't recall seeing this colouration before but it is very attractive.
This fellow is so plump and huggable.
His arms extend forward with his front paws loosely flexed at the wrist.
This is my favourite paw position amongst Dancing bears. It makes the bear look like it is faraway in a state of complete bliss.
Papigatok is one of my favourite artists. He carves the most charming and delightful bears. I know that he will never let my clients down.
Papigatok's bears sell like hot cakes.
