This bonded-bronze reproduction is based on a Greek statuette believed to be from about the third to the second century B.C. The woman's face is covered by the sheerest of veils, discernible at its edge below her hairline and at the cutouts for her eyes. She wears a laced slipper on her extended right foot, and her dress is expressively carved to capture its swirling movement as she dances. The subject matter of this statuette has been convincingly identified as one of the type of professional entertainers the city of Alexandria was known for in antiquity who had a combined role as mime and dancer.
