I did this drawing back in the days when I was living and working (in the police department) in Miami, Florida. I wanted to put some versions of dance, within a structure of everyday life. For example, the background images are separated and controlled by straight black lines. Basically the rest of the world is involved in their quest, perhaps for beauty. There are flowers and flowery bushes all over, representing that this is the natural world, green and filled with colour, although you cannot see it. There is a drummer that sets the rhythm. Classical dancers are involved in their pas de deux and here we see the connection that is made by the male dancer with a spectator. It seemingly is a kiss…
The other element of the dance is represented by the Sufi dancer, a Whirling Dervish. Here dance is religion, dance is spirituality and dance is meditation. These are three things that form an integral part of society and quite important for a well balanced life. Elements, one can say, that compose a human being for we are not just chemical elements, we are much more than that. We are not creatures that have randomly evolved. We are created beings made in the likeness of the Pantokrator.
