Elegant Inuit Carved Stone Polar Bear

Regular price $75.00

Another beautifully minimal Inuit carving, this one reminding me some of the work of Andy Miki  (1918-1983; Arviat) in its graceful lines and elongated head (I've included one photo for reference) as well as in the light gray stone. It also shares a spirit I think with small 19th century Inuit tusk carved amulets from the Bering Sea area. To me it really feels as if walking very softly over ice, very gentle, and with a lovely, serene presence.

4 7/16" long x 2" t x 1 1/16" w and in very good condition. There is what looks like an "A" carved into the underside of one paw.
