"Danse sacrée" is a sculpture that depicts a sacred dance. The work captures the energy and fluidity of movement through the use of dynamic lines and flowing forms. The subject matter may have references to religious or spiritual themes. Violent movement combined with an almost excessively simple construction. The figure is stiffly aligned along a diagonal line, the stiffness further emphasised by the curve of the scarf; the wild expression on the face suggests some primitive civilisation, the rhythm and beat of the dance finding a sort of sculpted equivalent. The marble itself seems tersely carved and records the twitching of the cloth like choppy waves.

Artist

Victor Joseph Jean Ambroise Ségoffin (1867-1925) was a French sculptor. He won the Prix de Rome in 1897. His work was part of the sculpture event in the art competition at the 1912 Summer Olympics. In 1920 he was appointed head of the women's studio at the École des Beaux-Arts. In 1906 he was made a chevalier of the Légion d'honneur, and an officier in 1911.
