Maia's sunflower dance
Maia was the leader of the Pleiades, the nymphs of the harvest in Greek mythology.
Lo kindly offered to represent her in the beautiful fields around Gourvillette, in the Charente Maritime region of France. Her arms and hands seemed to express a kind of dionysian dance linking the sun & sky to the ripening crop of sunflowers.
