Had a Long Wait before Getting this One - Enjoy!
We have been acquiring bears from Nuna Parr for many years and never seen a white bear by him before. It is an extremely RARE carving!!!
This bear is standing on only three paws! The front right paw does not touch the ground (slightly lifted up (!) - a trade mark of Nuna Parr walking bears)!
Bears by Nuna Parr are very hard to get, Inuit art galleries line up to get one or two. This is because Nuna is the most famous Inuit artist in the world for bears and this is the first white bear by him I have ever seen and would likely not see another one for a long time.
The sculpture is made out of beautiful shiny white marble. The carving is brand new. The bear is signed by the artist on the stomach.
This Walking Bear is HUGE! It weighs 98 pounds! A center piece for an art gallery.
The dimensions are 17 inches long, 12 inches wide, over 10 inches tall.
19 inches across (rare paw to nose).
For the Inuit art enthusiast, I do not need to explain the notoriety that comes with owning a Nuna Parr Bear. Pure and simple, he is the best Inuit artist in the world for Bears. His pieces sell well into the five digit category. The demand for a Nuna dancing bear is pretty much on par with getting a pair of tickets to the Book Of Moron Broadway show.
When I am lucky enough to get the chance to buy one, there is absolutely no hesitation on my side. This is because I know it will sell fast.
This is your chance to own one of his fine pieces. We buy directly from him and can offer you a much better deal than many other galleries.
