2114371814_c776f480b2_b 2114372430_c92936cc9a_b Nineteenth-century sculptor Giovanni Maria Benzoni was the creator of the famed 'Veiled Rebecca' -- reason on its own to visit Hyderabad where the original is displayed -- and of this delightfully dancing pair, completed in 1870.

Compare the loose-limbed hold of the dancing male on his partner with the more demanding grasp of Bernini's Pluto.
