One of the most graceful sports, pairs figure skating has been entertaining winter game lovers for ages. Pairs skaters perform elements such as acrobatic lifts that are unique to pair skating, all the while moving in perfect unison. Pair skating is difficult because achieving this degree of unison requires similar technique and timing on all elements of the performance, as well as ultimate trust between the partners. What many may not know is that the sport has evolved from it's classical roots to something far more daring.Some pair skating maneuvers are now banned from Olympic-eligible skating due totheir high risk of serious injury to the skaters. Illegal elements warrant deductions in competition. These moves include the heart-stopping headbanger where the female skater is spun by her ankles and elevated and lowered during the spin in a periodic fashion, sometimes with her head coming dangerously close to skimming the ice.
These two skaters however, are a classical reminder of the simpler-safer days of the sport. Happy and in all their glory, they are doing what they do best.This perfect duo looks like they are going for the gold. Both synchronized with skating moves and dressed to impress this couple give is their all. Both of their arms are straight and stiff to make sure they maintain balance. The girl extends her leg outwards and up showing off her amazing flexibility and the man stretches his leg out and down. This piece is truly beautiful and makes you smile.

In effect it makes EACH SCULPTURE an ORIGINAL since each one is different than the next (similar to a Limited Edition). Again, Milo-our partner-IS THE ORIGINAL SCULPTOR of this incredible work of art. Milo was born in Paris in 1939; Milo lived most of his childhood in Andalusia, Spain.
Influenced by an artistic family background, he began sculpting at the age of seventeen. After apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, he began his own work focusing equally on steel and bronze. Horses and other animals were a natural direction of his work to follow. Surrounded by horses as a child and witnessing the fighting bulls of Spain gave him an instinct for the inherent drama of these animals.Combining a special cement mixture with steel has allowed him the fluidity of metal with the timelessness of stone. This process enables him to capture the essence of the animal's nature. The characteristic rough texture and movement of line make Milo work easily identifiable in both cement and bronze.
