THE DANCE I

THE DANCE I
“The Dance I ” is a free standing  sculptural piece measured at 25.5cm in height and on a base of 10cm Ă— 8.5cm. It has been cast in resin and patinated in dark myrtle green auto base paint. It shows a female Isoko dancer from the Niger-Delta area of Nigeria with both arms raised and it has been rendered in naturalistic style. The dancer ties a headgear and a two-piece loincloth. She also puts on a blouse and beads are strung around her neck and wrists. The piece tilts a bit to the left with the left leg slightly raised. This work captures the Isoko woman doing the traditional hand clapping combined with dancing, a skill the Isoko women are known for
