Native Dancer Figurine
Painted Ponies, 4018387
| This creative interpretation of a vintage Indian Carousel
Pony pays proud tribute to the artistic traditions behind the magnificent,
hand-carved, carousel horses that were popular in America at the turn of
the century. With "Native Dancer," we are commemorating this extraordinary
art form and the artisans and craftsmen that elevated these elaborate Painted
Ponies, as they were known, to a high art. At one time, over 7,000 carousels,
or merry-go-rounds, spun their magical spell in amusement parks around the
world and many of those carousel horses were museum quality works of art.
Regrettably, only 300 carousels remain in existence today, and they are
still stunning and enchanting, after all these years.
