She Wears An Extremely Intricately Detailed Leotard That Fits Her Skin Tight And Exposes Her Body In Certain Spots. She Has Sweet And Innocent Facial Details; On Her Head She Wears A Cap That Matches Her Leotard. This Elegant 1920'S Female Dancer Is Perfect For Any Type Of Art Deco Styled Theme And Is Sure To Be The Focal Point In Any Room. The Handmade Bronze Sculpture Was Cast Using The Archaic Method Of Lost-Wax Casting And Stained With A Brown Patina Finish For Perpetuation. She Is Mounted Upon A Black Marble Base With The European Bronze Finery Stamp Of Quality And The Artist Chiparus Signature. Demetre Haralamb Chiparus Was A Romanian Art Deco Era Sculptor Who Lived And Worked In Paris. The First Sculptures Of Chiparus Were Created In The Realistic Style And Were Exhibited At The Salon Of 1914. He Employed The Combination Of Bronze And Ivory, Called Chryselephantine, To Great Effect. Most Of His Renowned Works Were Made Between 1914 And 1933. The First Series Of Sculptures Manufactured By Chiparus Were The Series Of The Children. 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.


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.
