SCOTSMAN DANCING THE HIGHLAND FLING

My decorative Scotsman is depicted dancing the Highland Fling.

This is the oldest of the traditional dances of Scotland and is a dance of joy performed at the end of a victorious battle. It was danced by male warriors over a small round shield, called a Targe,that the warriors carried into battle. Most Targes had a sharp spike of steel projecting from the centre, so dancers learned early to move with great skill and dexterity. The Highland Fling is danced on the spot, and is said to be based on the antics of a stag on a hillside the grouped fingers and upheld arms representing the antlers
