Ballerina in the Box
Artist Kera Spencer brings dancing objets d'arts to life.
In the mid-'50s, when every little girl dreamed of becoming a ballerina, one of the most treasured gifts was a jewelry box with a wind-up figurine that performed endless pirouettes.
2. Twirling to ''Waltz of the Flowers'' or ''Fur Elise'', these musical gems were often a child's first foray into the world of imagined elegance. Fast-forward nearly 60 years and Kera Spencer, Eufora Avant-garde Stylist of the Year and stylist for Michael's Hair Body Mind in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, recaptures this special experience with Ballerina in the Box, using real-life dancers for the camera and little girls everywhere-no matter what their true age might be.
