Ice skater at Swarovski's store window
...in Vienna. Since 10 November 2013, Swarovski's shop window shows a dreamy scenery where a female ice skater seems to finish the creation of her dance performance before she enters the ice stage. She wears a long dress and cape with sparkling embroideries, her hair is sculptured in 18th century baroque/rococo style. The trees around her are decorated with jewellery. The ice princess is holding one hand like a conductor - just as she sketches her pirouettes after the music in her mind. The name of the stage scenery is 'Silence'.
fig.: The stage scenery 'Silence' is on view from 10 November 2013 until 10 January 2014 at Swarovski Vienna (Kärntner Strasse 24). Curator: Gerda Buxbaum; hair: artistic team BundyBundy; jewellery: Swarovski Wien; dress and decorations: Swarovski Corporate Archive.
