tiny dancer

edgar degas made many paintings of ballet dancers. the only sculpture of a ballerina he shared with the world is the breathtaking 'petitie dansuese de quatorze ans.' this perfect piece was created between 1879-1881. in 1920 several casts were made. recently one of them was sold to an individual for 19 million pounds.
