Henning Polar Bear
Handsome and realistic wood polar bear is standing on an ice floe sniffing the air for prey. Hand-carved and hand-painted by Henning Studios of Norway. 4 x 5”
Henning Engelsen carved his first wooden figures in 1947 and the following year, founded Henning. After a workshop was built in the idyllic village of Kapp, and employees hired, the business grew steadily and became one of the leading Norwegian souvenir makers. Henning contributed to the tradition of Norwegian carving and continues to take inspiration from nature and folklore. Engelsen remained the creative source for Henning throughout his life and passed the business on to his three daughters.
