The ornament format shows off the grace and movement of this figure. In this smaller size, Dance of Life hangs delicately in arabesque. Her dress, deeply carved with pomegranates and birds, vines and berries, refers to the richness and renewal of life. Her gestures are highlighted by the deep evergreen of a holiday tree, or when hanging on an ornament stand year round. "The poetry of movement in dance choreography is what inspired the gestures of these two pieces.".
