Sculptor Glenna Goodacre uses the everyday in her work. In "Basket Dancer" a Pueblo woman dances in a ritual celebrating the role of women in her community. This piece not only presents women in their daily roles but also provides historical and cultural contexts from the time period. Goodacre's depiction epitomizes her modeling skill and sense of composition.
Fun Fact: Goodacre also designed a U.S. Sacagawea Dollar which continues to be minted today.
