A seria of 14 original costume designs (watercolour, pencil on paper) to a theater play or ballet with famous title "Dance of seven Veils" ((usually described as Dance of Salome) was executed between 1930s and 1940s by listed Austrian design , decoration painter and illustrator Eleonore Vogler (1920 - after 1958). In several notable works of Western culture, the Dance of the Seven Veils is one of the elaborations on the Biblical tale of the execution of John the Baptist. Details enriching the story in later Christian mythology include providing a name for the dance, and describing the purpose of the dance as being to inflame King Herod with incestuous desire so that he would treat John as she wished. History of Veils Dance or Dance of Salome see in wikipedia under following link:
