The statuette is made of more than 40 different parts of gold and platinum, each individually textured with Alex Soldier's proprietary metalwork finish. 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. The statuettes were on display at numerous private exhibitions across the world including the Mougans Gallery in Cannes, France, and United Nations. Handmade in NYC. Height: 190 mm; 7.5 inches.
