March 25. Celebrating Greek Independence Day!

On this day Greeks all over the world celebrate the start of the Greek War of Independence in 1821 that ended 400 years of Ottoman Turk rule, and lead to the formation of the modern nation of Greece (recognized in 1830).  So, joining in, here are some of my sculptures inspired by Greek dances—dances that are usually joyful, but they can also express sorrow, dignity, defiance, or unity (and conversely, independence).  It’s the spirit of communal freedom.
