This piece of art just puts a smile on your face.... Have a look at this

DANCING BEAR by Coast Salish First Nations master artist Doug Horne. 

This sculpture is so masterfully carved out of one solid piece of wood - yes, the base is not mounted - it's ONE piece!

You can really see the BEAR dancing - he's having a great time, definitely happy - just wonderful! It's REALLY difficult to master this expression but Doug did it. The carving is deep and clean, the eye is inlaid with Abalone shell, the oil accentuated the natural grain of the wood, no paint needed - simple, elegant - a masterpiece!

Measurements: 14 1/2" tall, 6 1/2" wide, 4" deep (37 x 16.5 x 10 cm)

Meaning: The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest 

Note: overseas shipping is available, costs ($125 CAD) added at check-out
