This is a captivating bronze study of the beautiful ballet dancer Natacha Nattova and a depiction of the dance she performed in front of a Prussian Prince who was so captivated that he asked to marry her. When you look over the sculpture and the depth and warmth of the patina meet your eye, it sends a sense of calmness and gracefulness. It’s almost as if the sculpture is a picture of a lullaby in still motion. She points her toe, carefully and gracefully she turns her body, even her fingers are positioned in a polite manner. Her beautifully proportioned body is accented by the ballet dress she wears. Creasing with gravity and fluid movement, the bodice is similar to a corset adorned with beautiful roses by her left shoulder. The skirt is wide and flowing at the hips giving nice dimension to the dancer. On her feet she wears ballet slippers that criss- cross around her ankles and tie. Her hair is tied back split into pigtails and tied up again into such fine proper buns. Her face has delicate features, with high cheeks bones, a small pointy nose, wide innocent accepting eyes and a smile that cannot be forgotten, it’s no wonder why the prince asked for her hand in marriage.You will find the artist signature in the base of the sculpture. The bronze sculpture has a brown patina and is mounted on a round circular marble base and signed by artist Collet.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?

Custom work is available in some cases.  Please contact us with the details of the job.

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?

Unfortunately, we do not buy pieces from the public.  To ensure the highest quality, we only sell brand new pieces that we commission ourselves, or buy directly from artists and manufacturers we know and trust.
