Egyptian Dancer

Dancing played a vital role in the lives of the ancient Egyptians and involved all social classes as “The laborers worked in rhythmic motion to the sounds of songs and percussion, and street dancers entertained passers by.”

Dance Costumes

In the Old Kingdom female dancers wore short men’s skirts or danced naked wearing just a belt around their waist.

Chiparus

Demetre Chiparus is perhaps the most famous proponent of Bronze and Ivory Art Deco figurines and certainly one of the most important sculptors of the Art Deco period. His sculptures are famous for their elegance and style and are much sought after by Art Deco collectors. You can read all about Chiparus in our article here.
