Happy Girl (SOLD)

‘Happy Girl’ is a large figurative sculpture of a young girl dancing.
This sculpture was inspired by Issa’s daughters Angela (3) and Sophie (1) who become impromptu dancers anytime they hear music. They also bring back memories of joyous festivals in Issa’s home of Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa; where by the light of the full moon, the whole village from the oldest elder to the youngest baby, dance to rhythmic drums until the wee hours.
This sculptural art work is created from mild steel, rusted to the desired patina and then sealed to prevent further rusting.
‘Happy Girl’ was selected for exterior display at the Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition which runs until June 15 (see www.toorakvillage.com.au)
