Tutsi Dancer - Everyone who follows the news knows about the horrible goings on in the Tutsi homeland. What makes this tragedy even worse is the image of a people it creates. Now when you think of this ancient race, images of massacred civilians come to mind, rather than the long traditions of what came before.
One of these traditions is the Tutsi warrior's dance. It has been described as one of the most exuberant and joyous dances in the world. Since my recent endeavors in improving technique have allowed for more fluidity and movement in sculpting, I thought it was time for a dancing image. I couldn't think of a better subject than a Tutsi warrior.
