About the Sculpture: You are viewing an outstanding sculpture of the "Starfish Dancer", by Demetre Chiparus, master sculptor of the Art Deco period. It's a charming piece that depicts a young lady in a graceful dance position with her arms over her head and her legs crossed over each other while standing on the tips of her toes. It would make a great collectible decorative piece for your home. True to the art deco period this is a delightful replica by Romanian-born and Paris-trained artist Demetre H. Chiparus (1886-1947) cast in bronze with a dark brown patina complemented by man-made Statue. Demetre Chiparus was originally born in Romania and exhibited his works in high class galleries in Paris. His sculptures were based on ballet and the theater. His statues were always exquisitely detailed. About the Artist: He attended school in Italy and at the Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris, and he exhibited at the Salon in 1914. Chiparus was particularly adept in the technique of chryselephantine, the combination of bronze and to produce dramatic, stylized sculpture. He produced most of his renowned works between 1914 and 1933. Paris was an exciting place in the years leading up to World War II, when Art Deco style and swinging good times were in vogue just as in the United States. His later works in the 1920's were influenced by his interest in Egypt, after the excavation of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen's tomb. Some of his most exciting works are dancers taken from the Russian Ballet, French theater, and early motion pictures. Dancers were captured in movement, dressed in high art deco style and long and lean in appearance. Demetre Chiparus worked primarily with the Etling Foundry in Paris, and he died in Paris in 1947.

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?

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?
