The collector had some of the rarest Inuit art I have ever seen in the world. This is one of the pieces I was fortunate enough to receive from there estate.
There is no major damage to note, some age lines. One very small fracture to the Polar Bears right foot, seems to be normal with age on pieces like this. Normal signs of wear overall for age. I believe there might have been a rope at one time going from the Polar Bear to the Eskimo pulling him down. Besides that, I dont see any other issues.Please view all the photos carefully to determine the exact condition of the item. It measures 19 inches long, and the Polar bear at its highest point is nearly 5 inches tall. Let me know if you have any other questions, and thanks for looking!
