Florida Artists Gallery unveils Deer Dancer sculpture

The Florida Artists Gallery has installed a new outdoor sculpture entitled “Deer Dancer,” a, life-size, welded metal sculpture depicting the legendary deer dance as performed by members of the Yaqui Tribe of Sonora, Mexico.
The deer dance is an elegant performance that symbolizes the struggle between good and evil by depicting a confrontation between a sacred deer and aggressive coyotes or hunters.  The dance is known for its graceful moves, elegant jumps, and proud body movements of a dancer in a deer head mask with antlers.  Meticulously welded from sheet metal, “Deer Dancer” captures the drama and symbolism of this age-old mythological performance.
