This etching is hand painted on wood. The etching measures: 30 1/8 inches by 30 1/8 inches. The wonderful unique movement of Women's Fancy is captured here. The elegance of the dancer's regalia in motion resembles that of a butterfly's wings. This equivalent to Men's Fancy shows a fast and unique style that combines a blend of color, motion whirling, hopping, and skipping. The signature shawls for which the dance is named, gives a fast and floating appearance. The photo, taken by the artist became the subject of this painting of the evolving beauty of Women's Fancy.
