The Dancer, Victor Halvani, 1994. 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Edition of 10. (2005)
File Under: Halvani; I Took This Photo!; Statue
I forget exactly how it came up, but I was talking on the phone to my friend Ron a couple months ago when he mentioned he had a valuable statue in his house. Intrigued, I asked him to tell me more and he explained that years ago when his wife was in Israel, she discovered a sculptor named Victor Halvani. She fell in love with his work and returned home with a large (six feet tall) statue of his. She's grown tired of it, but it has appreciated considerably in value and now she's torn between selling it or keeping it.
While we were on the phone, I looked it up online and Ron helped me figure out which one it was on the Victor Halvani web site. Halvani's work has a very beautiful, streamlined style that is evocative of Egyptian artwork. Once I saw it, I knew I had to take some pictures of it myself. It's not every day you get a private viewing of a rare and valuable sculpture. Ron said to come by anytime and a couple weeks later I showed up on his doorstep with camera and tripod.
Today's image is the first of several I took of this stunning piece.
