This piece was carved so it could be views 'in the round'. You get a different understanding depending on how you turn the piece. If you view from the side where you can see the man and woman's arms around each other, it looks like they're kissing. If you turn it and view it from where you can see their faces and clasped hands, it looks like they're dancing - and it's a totally different piece.
The item is made in resin and hand-painted with lead-free paint.
