They also have a certain protectiveness and prowess about them -- characteristics that are easily seen in this soapstone carving of a standing bear. Illustrated, step-by-step directions provide techniques for carving, from designing the bear to adding the final polish. Chapters include carving the waist and belly, head and shoulders, legs and tail, and its ears and snout. A gallery of completed projects will inspire your own creativity.
