carvingDancing Starfish II
1&1/2 x 1&1/2
Design #225b
$72
There are several things about the starfish that make it quite interesting and maybe even symbolic. First, it has the ability to regrow its legs if they are broken off.

But even more incredible is the strength it has. Starfish feed on shellfish. They attach themselves to the shell and with slow, persistent force they open the shell. If you've ever tried to open a shellfish with your hands you will appreciate how much strength it takes.

Our first design depicted the starfish with the legs straight out but it seemed to lack grace. So Gerry redesigned it with a sense of flow by curving the legs. You can almost feel the motion.
