Elena Yakovlevna Danko (1898-1942) was a porcelain painter at the factory and besides sets of dishes and crockery worked on porcelain sculptures, mainly on the works by her sister N.Y. Danko. In 1921-1924 she created a number of figurines, the most famous of which is The East Awakening (A Turkish Girl). The sculpture was dedicated to the First Congress of the Peoples of the East that took place in Baku in September 1920.
