Elegant objects with evocative shapes and decorations: Wanders plays with the imagery of the Circus, translating its timeless beauty into a colourful and festive collection. Ballerina is an elephantess who loves ballet. She dances together with her partner, a little mouse fascinated by her talent, twirling gracefully on a golden ball. Two romantic characters imagined by Marcel Wanders to give life to a poetic music box. The stage on which the two perform their dance number encloses the mechanism that produces the melody, for which Wanders chose Julius Fučík's Entrance of the Gladiators, the well-known tune that opens the circus performances worldwide. Produced in the Alessi factory in Crusinallo di Omegna, this is an object-sculpture to be collected, dedicated to true connoisseurs of the applied arts.
