Planned for

Dancing Polar Bear Carving
Wide view on polar bear carving on ice.

Inuit sculptor and visual artist Derrald Taylor creates a snow sculpture of the North’s most iconic animals, a polar bear.

Filmed on the frozen Arctic Ocean, under the northern lights, this piece represents both the eternal permanence of the North, as well as the transience and fragility of our delicate environment.

While the creation of the sculpture was filmed in Virtual Reality, the natural destruction of the piece would be a view reserved only for those in the community of Tuktoyaktuk.
