Marvin Jim, one of the most acclaimed folk artists, has carved another fetching figure that combines both animal and human characteristics. This fellow looks very patient, calmly seated, looking toward – what? Dancers? Food preparation? Traffic passing by the trading post?
A carefully naturalistic bear with an friendly, alert expression, is dressed in a Sunface-decorated teeshirt, drooping out over his jeans, in the back. Adorably, his jeans seem to be custom-made, allowing a space for his little tail! Aside from the Sunface, other signs that this is a Native bear are the moccasins on his feet, and the silver and turquoise bracelets on his front paws.
Expert carving, pleasing colors and a smile-inducing subject; just the thing to brighten your day, every day!
