Day 17 of the Free Yogis challenge was Love Yourself. I chose to show Dandayamana Dhanurasana, or Standing Bow Pose because I really love how much progress I’ve made in this pose. My leg still isn’t perfectly straight, but it’s getting there at the pace that’s right for me.
Earlier this year, our Decorative Arts and Sculpture conservators extensively treated Howard Roberts’s “La Première Pose,” removing over 80 years of grime. Now that the treatment is done, the sculpture has been reinstalled in the American Art gallery 111.
