Favourite Item
This lively work in alabaster was created towards the end of 19th century.
She is the absolute embodiment of the Orientalist style which was so much the fashion at that time, all things Middle Eastern being the vogue.
She is clad in the lightest of floating silks, affording the artist the opportunity to display his considerable skill, as the diaphanous material seems to flow about her. the rest of her scanty costume is picked out in gold to beautiful effect.
The movement of her erotic dance he has captured perfectly; she is posed on the toes of one foot with the other foot raised in mid-step, her arms elegantly set in motion also.
From every angle she is equally lively and is very much designed to be appreciated "in the round".
