The Pumpkin Dancers

This sculpture has a little story. Some years ago during a break of a ballet rehearsal I noticed Todd carving away on a miniature bone sculpture. At the time we a greed to make an exchange of sculptures at a later date. This Spring during the rehearsal for the Schubert ballet I asked Todd what he would like me to carve for him ? - his answer was a "pumpkin". I did not think that this would be much of a challenge, but did not want do disappoint him either. Thus I carved Todd with his wonderful partner Andrea Hogde on top of a pumpkin.The original position is from the Schubert Ballet by John Alleyne.
