Title: Yup'ik Dancer III with Removable Bird Mask Pin/Pendant, ca.2007; #5 of 5
Artist: Denise Wallace
Size: 4" tall
Materials: Sterling Silver,18Kt Gold, Fossil Walrus Ivory, Sugilite
Comments: This remarkable dancer is really dynamic. The pose is that of a dancer in mid-stride, and the body of the figure shows gold hand fans of the styles used in traditional dancing. The main figure (worn as either a Pin or a Pendant) has a removable mask that can be worn as a separate pendant - both can be worn at the same time! Worth noting is how the artist used pieces of beautifully colored "fossilized" ivory in the parka and pants of the dancer figure.
We display pendants on a variety of chains and collars which are available at extra cost - please contact us directly for quotes and advice.
