“This is the spirit that animates people as they dance.”

The twisting lines echo the movement of their bodies, as the dancers spin and reel around together.

This is an absolutely stunning medium-sized sculpture, with a fantastic combination of movement and colour. It looks pleasing from every angle, and would be a great centrepiece in a small garden.

Obviously, the stone is the star of the show! The colours in the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.

The green veins, with their crystalline structure, are part of the natural stone. They are made of a different mineral, even harder than the serpentine, and they have a fascinating texture that’s almost like crocodile skin. It’s a sculpture you could gaze at for hours…
