Celebration.

Celebration. In orthodox Jewish communities men and women dance separately. It is for the sake of modesty and devotion to their wives.  I tried to emphasize the energy and emotion by being attentive to the rhythm of heads and hands.
 I used ink and Kuretake pens on Fabriano Artistico.
