The Grape Dance

With the juices of the warm, sun ripened grapes oozing between her toes, she happily trudges in the huge vats, dreaming of clean toes and fine shoes.

Media: Head, hands and feet of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature with a cloth body. She has a brown mohair braid protruding from under her white wimple and hood. Her underwear and slip are stained with diluted purple paint. She has a green skirt with silk ribbon trim. She wears a chartreuse cotton shirt, a peach brocade vest with short puffed sleeves, and a dirty apron.

Props: The tub is wooden, with plastic grapes covered in glossy purple varnish.

Height: 31 cm (12")
