WOW !! ...and the face is so sweet, I imagine a gentle innocent soul who is just trying to express herself. Her quiet demeaner draws me in. Love her dress, but this face hints at the human story behind the exotic and wonderful art of the costume.

Hummm? Where are the dancers feet? You cannot dance without your feet. cheers! D

HI Dee,
I maintian that if you create a basic human form, the viewer will unconsciously "fill in" missing parts to suit them. When this happens, they begin to take ownership of the form/artwork. Having all body parts viewable is not necessary to the pieces.

Humm? I say when the parts are missing it says to me the artist does not know how to draw the hands feet... Tee hee ! Dee

So, that silly man who painted the Mona Lisa couldn't paint arms and legs?

That is a portrait not a dancer tee hee dee

Ah Ms. Dee,
You are correct! The Mona Lisa is indeed a portrait! I still maintian though that a good piece of art can depict a dancer without showing feet. My women should be representing dance as total body involvement, sans feet. Some examples of "footless" dancers would be:
"Daneuses en Rosa" by Degas and "Flamenco I" by Carlo Gallo. Thanks my friend for a lively discussion!
