'Povzunets' (Medium: Graphite and Pencil Crayon). Colour laser reproduction. This classic Kozak dance, which highlights the performance of tricks and dancing in a squat position, has become iconic of the Kozak. The exuberant energy and skill that it takes to perform these tricks so effortlessly is absolutely amazing! I’ve captured the background fellows who cheer on the soloist madly performing their skills. The costuming is styled after Kozak dress of the central region of Ukraine with “sharovary” (big baggy trousers), the “poyas” tied around the waist, and boots and hats. The black and red colouring reflects the dramatic symbolism of Ukrainian culture, particularly that of the black and red patterns in the cross-stitching on the shirts and all-important red boots. Matted laser copy reproduction on 110 cardstock with card backing and sealed in a plastic sleeve. Matte Size: 12 x 16"
