Description
Many of the images Elyse Ashe Lord created were amalgamations of her studies of Eastern dance, mythology, and culture, places she was never able to visit but in which she found great inspiration. This image appears to be a depiction of a Cambodian or Indonesian dancer wearing a headpiece draped on either side with white blossoms. Behind the dancer Lord has rendered over-sized white peonies as a backdrop.
