The village girls gather to watch a young ballerina, bright flowers in her hair, dancing for joy.

The hunting party departs and the villagers return to their celebration of the harvest. They gaily set a garland of flowers on Giselle’s head, crowning her Queen of the Harvest. Giselle begs her mother to let her dance and show everyone how happy and grateful she is. She dances, spinning and twirling, skirt flying.

All the villagers join in.

Giselle runs to embrace her mother, and seeing Loys, pulls him joyfully into the dance with her.

I may be able to direct you to a gallery or exhibition where you can see this print in person (which is always the best!) Otherwise, I’ll order a print for you. Please allow some time for my wonderful local printers to print and frame – depending on how busy they are, it may take a few weeks. Let me know if there's a particular date you have in mind!

It is always very special to be able to take home a memento of a great holiday break and I am delighted with “Freed from the Earth”. I was immediately drawn to the ethereal quality of Paige’s dance and the way you had portrayed her gown. She is now hanging in our home and looking just lovely – makes me smile every time I look at it.
