Happy To See You

Animal: Bear, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
Lumbering happily along, this antler Bear carved by Claudia Peina, will waltz right into your heart. The joyful inlaid jet eyes together with the happy smile are infectious and irresistible. The bear is honored with a necklace of delicately inlaid turquoise pieces. The contrast of the black jet paste darkened details of the necklace and claws against the antler material are delightful and add even more character to the carving. The bear's warm brown nose and adorable tail are created by burnishing the antler until it turns brown from the heat created by friction. This lighthearted bear measures 4 1/4" tall, 4" wide by 1 1/4" deep and can be situated on either foot.
