Visitors will see 56 rare exquisite figurines and small sculptural groups created in the 1920s – 1930s by craftsmen from France, Germany, Austria and other countries.
The works, amazing in their beauty and grace, are made in a complex chrysoelephantine technique, the basis of which is the combination of patinated bronze and ivory in one piece. In such works, most of the human figure and her costume were cast from bronze, and the faces, arms, and legs were carved from ivory. An important role in the creation of such works was played by a pedestal made of colored stone, on which the statuette was fixed. The world of theater, carnival and fashion was one of the main sources of inspiration for the direction sculptors. This can be seen on the example of the works "Steps" by D. Chiparus, "Dance" by M. Buren, "Dance of the Harlequin" by A. Gilbert. "Turkish Dance" K.Zh.R. Colinet presents the theme of the East, which is popular among the masters of small plastic arts.
