Project Description

Eagle Dancer II, by Roy Henry Vickers

The inspiration to paint Eagle Dancer ll came from close observation of the Northwest Coast Indian dancers and dancers from the Pacific Ballet Theatre of Vancouver. It was truly a bicultural creation, unique to British Columbia.
For the Northwest Coast Indian artist, both the rhythm and movement of music and dance are intimately associated with two-dimensional design.
There is a constant flow of movement reflected in the undulating formlines of all the art. The discipline of adherence to the traditional forms of this ancient art is reflected in the power of the performer as he readies himself for the first steps.
