Swimming Joy is exquisite, innocent and vivacious. The sculpture celebrates life, playfulness and harmony.
It is evident in this piece, the perfect balance of elegant lines. It is complimented by the intricate detailed painting that adds the soft blues, yellows and golds to this youthful piece.
Swimming Joy is carved out of Crocodile Wood. Crocodile Wood is also sometimes referred to as the Ivory of Woods because of the similarity of color and smooth finish of the two trees. Both yield surprisingly easy-to-carve wood of medium hardness. Crocodile wood is also interesting in that the heart is sometimes a stunning shade of purple.
