"Dancing on the Wind" 1
Many young women do what is called a shawl dance. A combination of ballet and NA footwork, the results is that the dancer never appears to fully touch the ground. In this case the dancer used colorful ribbons for her shawl's fringe and as the wind blew, so did the ribbons so she appeared to be "Dancing on the Wind". The background is mist of mountains and field. Item measures 16" in height (20" with stand) and is 8" in diameter. Created: November, 2009.
