Grizzly with Fish (Small)
View more work by James Aningayou
One of James' signature pieces, this bear would make a great gift for any bear enthusiast! He starts with a dense fossil walrus jawbone that is perfect for detailing the fur and molding the form of the bear. The claws are carved from baleen as are the inlaid eyes. This bear is the smaller of two sizes in which James carves his bears.
