La Danseuse

Art Wells

La Danseuse, approx. 5’ tall, Texas Limestone  


La Danseuse was inspired when I saw a photo of a young girl warming up for the ballet.  She was stretching by standing on one leg, pulling her other leg up over her head from behind.
Flexibility, determination, dedication, and talent are all embodied within this young girl.  Perhaps some other young person could be inspired by this message in a positive way to lead a fuller life. 
La Danseuse is about the goodness and innocence of youth.  Hold on to your dreams through that determination and dedication.  Be flexible and know we all have some talent inside that wants to play, to dance, to create, to live life to its fullest.
