With their artistic objects, Karl and Franz Hagenauer also served longings that were unrealizable for many Europeans. This very rare statuette of a dancing Balinese woman perfectly embodies this dream of exoticism. Traditionally dressed in a floor-length wrapped robe, the woman performs a (perhaps religious) dance. Her carefully coiffed hairstyle with an elaborate headdress emphasizes her festive character. The train of the robe is a particularly beautiful detail in this composition. The figurine is executed in a combination of finely carved wood and cast metal. One can find strongly stylized features combined with excellently executed details which is very typical for Werkstatte Hagenauer.
