Dancing on one foot... and then the other.
This very rotund gentleman is the most portly carving we have in the gallery.
Can you recall the "large" fictional characters from your childhood?
Santa. Humpty Dumpty. Winnie the Pooh. Fred Flintstone and Shrek.
I love this bear because he seems unabashed and uninhibited.
He doesn't allow his very large size to interfere with his desire to dance and have fun.
And his colouring is spectacular. I could look at this stone pattern for ever. Every angle gives you a new colour and a different pattern of richness.
Petaulassie is another one of my favourite and reliable carvers. Reliable because I know Isaaci will use his talent to carve the perfect bear every time.
Who is the unabashed and unencumbered person in your life?
Or who could use some inspiration to let go and be themselves?
