Engraved copper brooch of a dancing camel
Engraved copper brooch of a dancing camel after Lisbeth Zwerger by Brigit Viksnins. 1¾" x 2¾". On verso: "Seeking popularity is the fastest way to lose friends."
Brigit told me after class one day that she did not understand one text we had read that day: "The Dancing Camel." The next class I brought along for her Zwerger's wonderful illustration of the gangly-looking camel so contented with himself as he dances. She not only "got" the fable; she went to work producing this lasting memory of it. I recognized Zwerger's illustration in Brigit's brooch immediately.
