If a young man is smitten with the dancing of the maiden he might choose her for his wife.
While this is not as common any more the African Maiden Dancer is a beautiful carving representing the energy and vitality of youth and the excitement of dancing and courtship.
This lovely and delicate work stands 26 inches tall and only weighs 5 pounds.
