Headstand sculpture post #3 -1 first piece.

I started this project this August and was sidetracked, however today I made a lot of progress. When completed the sculpture will be a composition of 3 young children attempting to balance on their heads. I am hoping to be able to capture how the energy and balance of each child effects the others. I took many years of ballet and gymnastics when I was younger and I found it interesting to see one person loose balance  and then everyone loose their balance  without anyone touching. The force or the energy between objects that you can't see is what I am hoping to capture with these playful pieces. 

The first of three pieces  of a new sculpture in wax. To be cast in bronze.

This will probably be the center headstand kid. Can you tell how he is trying to steady himself over his head by separating his legs?
