An artist whose animal sculptures are widely collected – and you can see why: He has really captured the essence of the bear, in this piece.
Clean and precise carving results in a refined, chiseled texture that represents the rough bear fur. Artful use of polish – on his nose, eyes, and underneath the “fur”, creates a very tactile contrast. The visual effect of the rich, dark wood of the base and the pale alabaster is vey pleasing, as well.
Bears are symbols of protection and healing; their superior strength and intelligence leads them to the top of the food chain. From every angle, this bear is handsomely alert and stalwart in his protection of your home, whether from shelf, mantle or table top. Great for office, as well as home.
