Moon Dance

15"H x 13"W x 13"D

Many of my art dolls are inspired by song lyrics and poetry. This piece was inspired by a song of the same name. The lyrics "It's a marvelous night for a moon dance" just conjured an image of a dancing moon in my head. The Moon is dressed in his finery: velvet tail coat, silk vest, lace jabot and cuffs. The figure is soft sculpture. Head and hands are sculpted with needle and thread, and colored with pastels. The base is painted to mimic a starry constellation in the night sky.
