A FEW WORDS FROM THE ARTIST:   "Ballet dancers are such a pleasure to observe while they dance around as if defying gravity. Their muscles are defined, nothing left to chance and yet they capture you in a graceful song of movement. The drapery flying around gives the sculpture rhythm. The hair swirls around enhancing the flow. It comes to a point as does the hair creating a duet of similar shapes. From the frontal view you will see that the composition creates an arrow pulling her off the ground. From the sideview you'll see her body and drapery forming the traditional triangle composition. I  especially enjoyed sculpting the feet and muscles of the legs. I found the name Spirit of the Senses befitting for her since the dancing coupled with the music she's hearing is all about the senses. Seeing a ballet always inspires me to sculpt. It's a feast for the eye."   Vala Ola
