A Music Room is a place where you can ejoy music and drift into a fantasyland of imagination. In commemorating the 100 year Anniversary of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet, Lena Liu transformed her room into the stage for Balanchine's Ballerinas.
In Lena's "Music Room II", scenes from the first act of the Ballet grace the panels of the Oriental screen while figures from the second act perform in the Oriental rug.
Viewers familiar with the Ballet will be able to find numerous characters and scenes hidden throughout the painting.
