This is a fantastic quality bronze sculpture of an Art Deco dancing lady. This large heavy bronze is entitled 'Phoenician Dancer' and was sculpted by Demetre Chiparus. Chiparus' work was heavily influenced in the 1920s by the art of ancient Egypt and the unveiling of King Tutankhamen tomb. You can see the creativity and the inspiration of the Egyptian art in this piece. She extends her arms out and poses in a theatrical pose. She stands on her toes and dances with her legs close together and bent. This is an extremely detailed piece right down to the tone of her stomach muscles. This sculpture was handmade and has a brown patina. It is signed Chiparus and is mounted on an art deco styled black marble base. Demetre Haralamb Chiparus (also known as Dumitru Chiparus; 16 September 1886, Dorohoi, Romania - 22 January 1947, Paris, France) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris. He was born in Romania, the son of Haralamb and Saveta. In 1909 he went to Italy, where he attended the classes of Italian sculptor Raffaello Romanelli. In 1912 he traveled to Paris to attend the Ecole des Beaux Arts to pursue his art at the classes of Antonin Mercie and Jean Boucher. Demetre Chiparus died in 1947 and was buried in Bagneux cemetery, just south of Paris.

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?
