He cast his own sculptures and those of a number of friendly artists in white metal from bronze moulds. Afterwards, the sculptures were bronzed, "cold-painted". The young woman with the modern hair performs a gymnastic dance with a ball. The sculptor takes the tense moment when the gymnast pauses for a moment, and then continues her dance. Early ex.
