DESCRIPTION

Glossy porcelain figurine of flamenco dance, the woman's hairstyle is adorned with a red rose to match the earrings and ruffles of the spectacular tailed gown.

Flamenco represents a style of dance from the south of Spain, flamenco dancing in a long-tailed dress, or bata de cola. An art that has transcended national borders and that since 2010 has been designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The bata de cola is rarely seen on today's stages, due to the difficulty of its handling, the cost of its preparation, and its incompatibility with some of the current styles or schools of dance. It appeared during the second half of the 18th century in Granada, and was made of white calico, to a specific length.

In the first quarter of the twentieth century, the use of the bata de cola became a compulsory feature of shows, thanks to Pastora Imperio and Antonia Mercé. The bata continues to be used to this day, granting its wearer the reputation of a genuine professional. In this piece, the expression and movement of the arms and hands of the dancers is as much the focal point as the way in which the woman moves the long tail of her spectacular dress. With a shiny porcelain finish, the woman's hair is adorned with a red rose to match the earrings and ruffles of the bata de cola.
