Although Degas is mainly known as a painter, sculpting was almost as important in his life. He began seriously to sculpt when he was in his early forties and, although he probably had no thought of exhibiting most of his sculptures, his wax models increasingly became a major part of his work. The only sculpture exhibited by Degas in his lifetime, the wax version of the Little Dancer caused a furor when first exhibited in 1881.
This reproduction statue of Degas' iconic ballerina features a bronze-colored finish and cloth details. The perfect addition to an office or study, statue measures 8 inches high, 2.5 inches wide, and 2.5 inches deep. Intended for indoor use only, statue rests on a black platform.
