Nureyev was a legendary ballet dancer, whose influence on the world of ballet changed the perception of male dancers, as well as his crossing the borders between classical ballet and modern dance by performing both. This infinitely intricate precious miniature presents a complex integration of meaning and design that transcends the boundaries of traditional craftsmanship. Commissioned by Russian World Gallery and based on original work of Philip Firsov, the statuette was on display at numerous private exhibitions across the world including the Mougans Gallery in Cannes, France, and United Nations. The statuette is made of more than 40 different parts of gold and platinum, each individually textured with Alex Soldier's proprietary metalwork finish. Handcrafted in New York City. Height: 190 mm; 7.5 inches.
