The ballerina is depicted in a graceful position, with her chin raised and and the fabric of her tutu floating almost ethereally behind her. The details of her curls and facial expression show exquisite craftsmanship.

This statuette certainly captures the weightlessness and poise with which the nationally revered Plisetskaya executed her ballets, serving as a testament to the extent of her appreciation throughout the Soviet Union and the world.

This piece is in overall excellent condition.
