Sculpture description:
Finely Carved Woods Dancer Woman Hyper-realistic Resting Sitting female sculptures for sale by Gordon Becker He describes it thus.
"This piece is constructed of White pine, sliced and joined to form the costume. The limbs and face are carved from white maple which have been laminated from multiple sections to keep the grain running in the direction of the actions of the limbs. This allows for tremendous strength in all parts of the sculpture, while using selected grains to suggest the direction of the musculature beneath the skin, adding an extra dynamism to the work.
Artist's comments:
I made this piece as a tribute to my mother shortly after her death. The double dance bar is the barricade over which she passed. Her left hand is held before her eye as a shield from what she must eventually look upon. While carving the face, the faces of my sister and my sister?s daughter emerged from the wood, giving the piece its title.
