Bauhaus is a renowned arts movement born in late 19th Century Europe. It was a collective based on reviving the increasingly popular yet desolate mass manufacturing of home items, buildings and furniture.
Using simple designs and primary colours, the leaders of the Bauhaus movement paved the way for what we now refer to as 'modern art', so they were pretty influential chaps... and this utterly entrancing ballerina figurine is a fine example of the impact Bauhaus design can have.
Presented on a simple black circular base, this elegant young ballet dancer can been seen in her silver pointe shoes, arms thoughtfully placed over her bold tutu, with her head erect.
The round geometric balls are iconically Bauhaus and finished with bold primary colours, wholly appropriate to the era.
This sizeable piece is a celebration of dance and art, one to be treasured and admired daily.
She deserves pride of place in your home, your own personal Prima Ballerina.
