Retired Fancy Dancer Trail Of Painted Ponies Horse Figurine 1E/2096
The Fancy Dance evolved from the early Plains tribe's war and victory dances. It is an energetic style of dance, usually performed by younger men who spin, twist and make quick steps and fast turns. Their outfits are traditionally composed of lots of bright colors, metallic beads, sequins and ribbons which create a flashy display. They have two bustles, a head roach and intricately beaded headband... all of which are faithfully and stunningly recreated on a spirited, snorting horse that is caught up in the excitement of the drumbeat. This unique creation by a Virginia artist won The People's Choice Award in the national competition, The Native Art of Horse Painting.
The Trail began in Santa Fe as a popular public art exhibition that invited the best artists to magically transform life-size horses into glorious works of art. Now, the Painted Ponies are available for you to collect! These exquisitely crafted figurines are replicas of the original art from The Trail of Painted Ponies. Every one of these beautiful replicas was designed by various artists and incorporates themes of memoriam, mythical images, ancestral horses, futuristic, and all facets of life.
The horse is brand new in original box with original styrofoam packing & hang tag. Never used or displayed. Opened only to inspect.
