Sentiment: 'Dancing... Twirling! The magical miracle of life', measures 9"h, A Willow Tree (R) sculpture by Susan Lordi.
Turns and plays Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”
Dance of Life now turns atop a musical base, playing a well-known melody from the Nutcracker Suite, “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”. The musical format shows off the hand-carved surface and graceful gestures of this angelic dancer.
Artist Susan Lordi describes this piece by saying, "The poetry of movement in dance choreography is what inspired the gestures of these two pieces. I covered the surfaces with intricately carved symbols... on Dance of Life — pomegranates and birds, intertwined with vines and berries — refer to the richness and renewal of life.”
