Original sculpture by Konstantin Holzer-Dephanti "Lady with Muff" based on sketches by Walter Schnackenberg.
"Venice Carnival" - one of the dances of the play "Masquerade" in the Munich New Theater. Performed by the favorite C.Holzer-Defanti, the dancer Lo Hesse, as one of the most mysterious masks of the carnival, the mask of Volto Batte. The figure of a lady dressed in a winter Venetian costume seems rather static. Dark brown color of the costume and muff-covered hands emphasize the dampness and coldness during the Venetian carnivals. One of the first figures made by the sculptor for Rosenthal. ”
