I watch this little short video several times and now it is time to share it here, cos it is totally worth it.

Shot and hand-colored – frame by frame – at the end of the 19th Century. A dance performance of pioneer modern dancer Loie Fuller. Still captivating today, but just imagine what it must have been like to watch an image move and transform like this in 1899! A beautiful example of the earliest cinematic ART.
