 Together with the 'Twisting Torso', these pieces are the  study of the same female figure in movement: leaping   with abandon, and twisting as if in dance. They were   made as a pair. The rough texture of the surface is   reminiscent of the bark of a tree or the petals of a   flower. The idea of a rich earthiness to this figure is   implicit in this sculpture. The sculpture is elevated on   stainless steel rods to give the feeling of lift and free   movement.
 The one on the left is Twisting Torso and the one on   the right is the Leaping Torso - of which more pics   below...
