Lovingly carved by hand, this is a gorgeous conversation piece. She has details that are both delicate & rough, which makes a quiet statement about the duality of femininity. She is fierce, and she is strong. Her positioning lends itself to the imagination- did the artist let the natural shape of the wood guide their hand? It almost appears as if we are seeing her in a moment in time, perhaps in a dance, frozen forever in natural splendor. The artist thoughtfully added a stand, which protrudes from the rear of the statue, making displaying simple and elegant.
