Bronze Dancer Statuette

A wonderful example of Hellenistic Realism, this bronze sculpture depicts a street dancer who appears to be suffering from some type of deformity or illness. We see the artist taking extreme care to capture the details. We can see clearly the energetic movements of the dancer. It is difficult to gauge  the age of the dancer, but from the figure’s extreme thinness and facial features, we surmise that we are observing a man who is  getting on in years.
