This little sculpture shows clearly Josefina’s long held love of dancing. In her teens she had longed to be a dancer but her strict Brazilian father had absolutely forbidden this. In much later life she learned of Isadora Duncan and Free Dance, and accompanied on the piano, at a friend’s house she would dance, wearing flowing clothes she had designed specially for the purpose.
