Break Dancing Bear

By Loren Tsalabutie

Animal: Bear, Material: Marble
This offering is sold.
Break dancing is a style of acrobatic movement that started in the mid-1070's often performed to rap music. Dancers display fabulous intricate footwork, spinning headstands and tumbling, among other amazing feats. Looks like Loren Tsalabutie's joyful dancing Bear has mastered all the cool moves. The marble or perhaps Picasso marble specimen is really gorgeous and the turquoise-eyed dancing bear wears a little offering necklace strung with lapis lazuli, coral and turquoise beads. It is not removable. Measurements of this delightful work are approximately 3 1/4" tall, 2 5/8" wide and 1 3/4" deep. We wanted to share a few of Loren's own words: "I learned how to carve from my late father Jeffery Tsalabutie when I was 13 years old. I only made a few carvings under my father’s supervision until his untimely passing. I was 16 at the time. Being that young and grieving I found comfort in picking up after my dad the few words I remember him telling me when carving was: to always remember to give them life movement always flowing."
