  1. Marvellous !! I’ve only just caught up with these and very glad I did.. Striking poses that capture movement perfectly..

  2. What more is there to say? It’s neat to see the solidity in these figures, as compared to some of your more ethereal themes.

  3. A very appropriate title – I can sense the continuity of the movement.

  4. These are all pure and lovely!

  5. Brilliant work Elena!
