Fancy Dancer Northern Plains

 Cast paper sculpture first originated in Mexico and whereas many confuse it with paper-mache, artists say it isn't. Allen Eckman is an artist that developed his own method of working with cast paper in creating sculptures. Most of them are inspired by Cherokee spirituality.
