This sculpture portrays a poignant moment from the world of Russian Ballet, specifically from the iconic performance of "The Cat" by Ukrainian dancer, Serge Lifar, and Russian dancer, Alice Nikitina. The sculpture, which is believed to have been created around 1931, captures the intensity and passion of their embrace as they perform this groundbreaking ballet. The first rendition of "The Cat" took place in Monte Carlo on April 30, 1927, and the figures in this sculpture serve as a testament to the artistry and innovation that defined this production. The dancers' expressive bodies and intricate poses are expertly rendered, showcasing the skill of the model, June Hillegonda de Wet, and the artistic vision of the sculptor. Serge Lifar, a pioneering figure in the world of ballet, is depicted here in a kneeling position, embracing Alice Nikitina with a fierce intensity. Nikitina, in turn, appears to be lost in the moment, her body contorted in a graceful and fluid pose. Their connection is palpable, making this sculpture a beautiful and evocative representation of the passion and artistry that defined "The Cat" and the world of Russian Ballet during this era. The sculpture is a stunning work of art in its own right, showcasing the skill and artistry of the artist, Verner. The intricate details and lifelike quality of the figures make this a must-see piece for any art lover or ballet enthusiast. This sculpture is a testament to the enduring legacy of "The Cat" and the artists who brought it to life, and a reminder of the power of dance to move and inspire us.
