Shawl Dancers, by Cliff Fragua, celebrates the seasons, and the circle of life, though a series of beautifully cast bronzes. The series is

limited to an edition of just 18, and is available as a complete series or as your favorite individual season. Each Shawl Dancer is available

with full patina, as shown, or in a classic bronze patina. For more information about reserving a season, the entire series, visit a River

Trading Post Gallery, or our website.

Spring is a new beginning that represents

our youth, a time when young plants take

root in order to grow into maturity, just

as in our youth we needed to set roots in

order to grow into adulthood. It is a time

when the days are getting longer

Summer finds us in adulthood. It is a

time of blazing sun when plants must

adjust to survive heat and drought in

order to survive, just as we must over-

come challenges in order to build our

character

Autumn represents the golden years of

life when the grain is ready for harvest in

order to provide nourishment to peo-

ple. It is a time when we nourish the

younger ones, through our wisdom, so

they might successfully face their

challenges in life.

Winter is the time of cold and darkness, a

time when life ends in preparation for the

beginning of a new life in the Spring

season to follow.
