Markoosie Papigatok Dancing Bears are adored for their playful athletic poses.
Doesn't this fellow appear to be throwing a right punch?
Markoosie has him tilted way over to the left with his right leg held high and his right arm flexed backward as if he is getting ready to box.
This position showcases Markoosie's skill and ability to balance a bear on one foot PLUS tilt the piece to the side!
I am so lucky to have some of the best bear artists in the world showcased in my gallery for the benefit of my loyal clients.
Markoosie is an imaginative and innovative carver. I always make room for his sculptures. My clients love his Dancing bears.
