With her head held high, Degas's Little Dancer pin will be a proud adornment to your lapel or backpack. Degas's sculpture is of a young student of the Paris Opera Ballet dance school, a Belgian named Marie van Goethem. Her arms are taut, and the legs and feet are placed in a ballet position akin to fourth position at rest, and there is tension in the pose, an image of a ballerina being put through her paces, not posing in an angelic way.

Although I have never trained as a dance professionally, I love Degas' work so I had to order this for myself. This pin would be a great gift for young student in ballet class or an aspiring artist! It is very lovely and endearing.
