You have a great eye for the wood. I imagine the Citrus root inspired you because the dress is just so perfectly fitting for the wood.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Thank you all for your comments, so far.
Mark The Fiddler, I attached here the photo of the piece of root before I started to work in order to complete what was in your imagination.

Eli,
What you have seen in the root is incredible. I could never have seen it the way you did. Thank you very much for showing your “blank”.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Mark, when I saw the “wave” of the wood, immediately I saw in my imagination the dancer cloth in the while she is rotating fast, but my concern was the question if I have enough material for the legs, hands and head at the right proportions and the right place. All this sculpture stands on one shoe of 3.1CM X 1.3CM (about 1.24” X 0.54”). There was an area which was burned a little bit as you may see in the above picture.
