Sculpture and Ritual - The Money Dance #1

Friends are getting married. Together for years, they have all the stuff they need,
and asked for money to finace a honeymoon in Hawaii.

David asked, "How do you give money?"
I said, "If you are Chinese, you put it in a beautiful red envelope.
If your are not Chinese, you do a money dance."

He looked at me (again) as if I make everything up and said, "MONEY DANCE?"

"Look it up. You'll find examples on the internet. 
It's a lot more fun than leaving a boring pile of white envelopes on a gift table."

And so began this sculpture project.
