Carvings of Inuit Art Dancing Bears

Inuit art has been introduced to the market decades ago and we have observed some artistic changes along the way from the Inuit artists in response to market demand and feedback. For example, Inuit carvings have become larger and more polished compared to early primitive looking artwork. I think the Inuit carvers have been able to make changes without necessarily taking away from the northern Arctic spirit in their artwork. One of the innovations has been the dancing bear carvings. Dancing bears are in upright positions balancing on one hind leg. A new article on dancing bears from the Inuit art world has just been posted at the Free Spirit Gallery site and it goes into more detail of this type of Inuit art carving. See Dancing Bears of Inuit Art.
