Marvin Jim started carving his appealing animals on the urging of his wife.
Women know best; he has become a major folk artist, whose whimsical, inventive, and utterly charming figures combine human and animal features!
This sweet bear is wearing a fancy shirt and traditional jewelry, wrapped in an eye-dazzling blanket in rainbow stripes.
One moccasin tip peeps out from below the draped blanket.
Bears are traditional guardians and protectors; this engaging fellow has a serious expression, that is a bit wistful.
His head is turned; looking for a new home? He will light up yours, with his colorful attire.
Can you resist his friendly, hopeful expression (especially at this price)?
