How do you choose a carving?
Is it the physical presence of the sculpture that captures your heart?
The perfect proportions or the elegant lines?
Or is it the medium first ie. the colour of the stone, or the smooth glistening caribou antler?
How about the "personality" of the piece?
Show Off is unabashedly ignoring all the rules and restraints.
Instead he is focussed on the Dance.
The Dance ignites him.
Do you see the serenity on his face?
If Show Off had his way, his Dance would last forever.
But he will be happy with just one day.
