-- Ballet, Bols Liqueurs, and a ship in a bottle all have fifteenth century origins but that’s not what they uniquely have in common. When Andre Price, sole artist of WallArtDeco.us, visualized a beautiful ballerina taking the place of a ship in a bottle and its symbolic meaning, he did not know until his artwork was complete that his concept in part is now a collectible vintage item.
Bols, makers of Apricot Liquor, crafted a bottle that contained a wind-up dancing ballerina figure with music to enjoy along with its alcoholic content. The “Ballerina in a Bottle” created by Andre Price is a more refined and sobering art concept based on historic ballet and technological transition through the ages. A fifteenth century sailing ship in a bottle is something to behold with much curiosity over how it was placed into the bottle. This may suffice for a look back in time but it is uncommon to see a fully operational fifteenth century sailing ship on the open seas.
Ballet had its beginning in the Italian Renaissance courts of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Unlike most diminishing relics of the past, ballet is very much a cultural norm and flourishing in a modern world. Andre’
s “Ballerina in a Bottle”, representing ballet, is in juxtaposition to an old sailing ship in a bottle having survived from the fifteenth century thus symbolizing art preservation and tradition triumphing in a world of modernization.
High quality detailed prints of “Ballerina in a Bottle” are available in sizes up to 48" x 72" with four different ballerinas and poses to choose from. For further information about Andre Price, his showcase, and other artwork, visit http://BallerinaArt.net
