Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

“The Dying Swan” was a ballet choreographed by the Russian choreographer Mikhail Fokine in 1905 for famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova.

«Arms folded, on tiptoe, she dreamily and slowly circles the stage. By even, gliding motions of the hands, returning to the background from whence she emerged, she seems to strive toward the horizon, as though a moment more and she will fly—exploring the confines of space with her soul. The tension gradually relaxes and she sinks to earth, arms waving faintly as in pain. Then faltering with irregular steps toward the edge of the stage—leg bones quiver like the strings of a harp—by one swift forward-gliding motion of the right foot to earth, she sinks on the left knee—the aerial creature struggling against earthly bonds; and there, transfixed by pain, she dies.» André Levinson

This artwork will be enjoyed by everyone who is fond of ballet.
