Print: Fancy Dancer IV

Description:  A very popular subject with both Allen and Patty for many years, the “Fancy Dancer” is created with dazzling detail. This one-quarter life-size cast paper sculpture was used as a model for a one-half life-size piece commissioned by Ripley’s Entertainment. It was installed in the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum in Jackson, Wyoming, called “Northern Plaines-Fancy Dancer” (see it on the “commissions” page of this website). The Fancy Dancer is one of the newest Native American Dances among the competitive dance categories at Powwows. It was developed by the Native American Indians in the 1900′s, and is a very athletic competitive dance category. The dance is done with various dance sticks and other accessories (e.g. dance fan, porcupine roach headdress and two eagle feather bustles).  It is judged on the dancer’s native regalia, athletic grace and overall creativity.  Here, the Fancy Dancer holds a fan high in front of him.  The print is produced on archival photo paper using archival inks. It is signed and numbered by the artist.
