We were able to procure another Kakee Dancing bear carved in this soft green color mottled with black and white freckles.
However, the sun has kissed the nose and right arm of this enchanting creature.
The rich gold adores the piece as if the "gods" had carefully determined that this sculpture is special.
Notice the grizzly bear "hump" on the upper back.
This bear is solid and stoic. His snout is a bit exaggerated in size augmenting his fierceness.
The movement and balance of the bear is captivating.
Kakee is a skilled carver whose work brings to mind the Master Bear Carvers Nuna Parr and Isaac Petaulassie.
