The Egyptian belly dancers steps forward, left leg kicked up, from behind a curtain on tiptoes, cocking her head, as she presents herself to her audience seducing them. Exquisite details are seen throughout the exotic costume accredited to the method of casting; the beads and her Candelabra headdress (shamadan), her decorated belly-shirt and the billowing pant legs. She was captured using the age-old technique of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. She is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Chiparus's signature. Demetre Haralamb Chiparus (September 1886 Romania - January 1947 France) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris. The mature style of Chiparus took shape beginning in the 1920s. His sculptures are remarkable for their bright and outstanding decorative effect. Dancers of the Russian Ballet, French theatre, and early motion pictures were among his more notable subjects and were typified by a long, slender, stylized appearance. His work was influenced by an interest in Egypt, after Pharaoh Tutankhamen's tomb was excavated.

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?
