Figurine “Nikolai Tsiskaridze”
The art of ballet does not cease to inspire the masters of the plant to unique works. Anatoly Danilov continues the ballet theme, and one of his products was the embodiment in the china of the People’s Artist of Russia Nikolai Tsiskaridze in the image of Prince Siegfried from the ballet Swan Lake. The sculpture is executed in a realistic manner with careful elaboration of details and fine modeling. It has one point of support, which is technologically difficult in production. The figure is immortalized by a stopped moment, which retained the emotional impulse, movement and magic moment of beauty embodied in the dance. Nikolai Tsiskaridze was directly involved in the creation of sculpture: he communicated with the author, shared the subtleties of his skill, discussed the details of the emerging figure. The joint work allowed the sculptor to create the most accurate and full emotional-figurative portrait of the ballet artist.
