Image of plaster cast for 'Le septième voile' by Dora Ohlfsen
22 Aug 1869 - 07 Feb 1948
'Le septième voile' (The seventh veil) was one of a group of three nude sculptures that Dora Ohlfsen completed in the years between 1910 and 1914. The other two works were entitled 'Dawn' and 'The Pitcher goes to the fountain'. A reviewer in the 'Sydney Morning Herald' noted that this work was meant to invoke an Oriental dance: 'the arms close to the sides, with the hands upturned at the wrists, is from the dance of Salome'.
