back to figure: https://picasaweb.google.com/exat53/BrychtaUndSchule#5159802051154125890 similarities with the figure for sure but the base is different. Maybe it's about size? If figures were small - like the fish ... the boobs look similar and this one has no facial features. Worth checking out?

I think they're modelled very differently! The first one may have spectacular nipples, but the boobs look real and she's very muscle-y, just like a real dancer.
The second one has a pair of fake boobs and she's much more smooth and elegant in her outline. She's not a body-builder - she goes for the quick fix of plastic surgery!

Phew,  thanks for the escape route Scavo......!!  :usd:

I wouldn't let the base be the determining factor,  they are often configured to balance the stand and weight distribution of the figurine,  however,
I am with Sue here, they don't look like the same artist, unless of course there is a large time gap between their making and the artist has 'moved on' in style.
I will be very interested in Leni's reporting back after seeing Rowan.
