Rare figurine of Dancing Balinese woman, Werkstatte Hagenauer Vienna, circa 1935, hardwood and brass, marked
Out of stock
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.
