Inuit Art Carver of Dancing Bears Enook Manomie Passes Away

Enook Manomie, one of the best Inuit art carvers of dancing bears recently passed away up in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. His dancing bears were always special pieces as he was able to give them a real playful and happy image. Free Spirit Gallery was proud to have represented some of Enook's work in the past. Other Inuit art carvers who do carve nice dancing bears will have to try and fill a void now. Fortunately, there are several up and coming stars of dancing bears including Joanie Ragee of Cape Dorset. Free Spirit Gallery just happens to have one more dancing bear left at the gallery by Joanie - check it out at the Inuit Art Polar Bear Sculptures section.
