Veiled Dancer Sculpture from Hellenistic Age -

  • 157.50 USD

During the Hellenistic Age, Greek sculptors increasingly designed works intended to be seen from multiple points of view. Our reproduction of a Veiled Dancer is based on an original statuette in the Metropolitan Museum's collection, believed to be from Alexandria in the 3rd century BC, that shows the expressive qualities of the swirling entertainer's drapery. The woman's face is covered by the sheerest of veils, discernible at its edge below her hairline and at the cutouts for the eyes. Her extended right foot shows a laced slipper. This dancer has been convincingly identified as a depiction of one of the professional entertainers, a combination of mime and dancer, for which the cosmopolitan city of Alexandria was famous in antiquity.

Licensed reproduction, made from bonded bronze, 8 1/2''H x 5''W x 4''D.
