Markosie Papigatook’s Dancing Bears are adored simultaneously for their playfulness and their athletic prowess. Some of the bears appear to be practising martial arts which would make them a perfect gift for the yellow, green or black belt practitioner in your life. These bears’ dual nature reflects the influence the modern world has had on Inuit art.
Whether you lean toward traditional Inuit carvings or welcome a more modern silhouette, these sweet bears unfailingly bewitch and enchant our hearts.
I am always excited to present these celebrated sculptures to my clients.
