Rudolf Nureyev
This 1997 bronze sculpture depicts Rudolf Nureyev - in the ballet "Le Corsair". It is third in the series of 1/3 life size full figure dancer sculptures. In 1996 Padam began modelling this figure in wax, which he abandoned in favor of plastilina roma - a sophisticated plasticine for sculptors.
Following Dancer, in 1991 and Galina Samsova, in 1993, Padam completed a 4/3 life bronze bust in 1995 of Rudolf Nureyev. Both Nureyev, sculptures were acquired by the St. Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music, Russia in 1998 at a reception attended by Padam.
