This reduced-scale reproduction pays homage to The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer by Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917). The beloved resin statuette is dressed in fabric and stands on a wooden base; it will provide an artistic flourish among your decor or in a child's room.
The original sculpture, modeled after dancer Marie van Goethem, is one of several that he formed in various positions allowing him to explore the subtle variations in the dynamics of movement and of tension within the human figure. Degas enhanced the realistic qualities of the model by adorning it with real clothes including a bodice, tutu, and ballet slippers, and even added a human-hair wig held back with a silk ribbon.
