The sculpture, known as the Persian Dancers, features a male and female dancer in mid-dance. Both are wearing elaborate costumes with harem pants that flows with their movements. The male shadows the female from behind, clasping an arm about her neck as they both, in synchronized form, lean to their right with left arms extended, as though pulling the weight of emotion. The handmade bronze sculpture was cast using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. It is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Chiparus's signature.

Demetre Haralamb Chiparus (also known as Dumitru Chipăruş; 16 September 1886, Dorohoi, Romania - 22 January 1947, Paris, France) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris. He was born in Romania, the son of Haralamb and Saveta. In 1909 he went to Italy, where he attended the classes of Italian sculptor Raffaello Romanelli. In 1912 he traveled to Paris to attend the Ecole des Beaux Arts to pursue his art at the classes of Antonin Mercie and Jean Boucher. Demetre Chiparus died in 1947 and was buried in Bagneux cemetery, just south of Paris.
