Animal figurines have a long tradition at MEISSEN; even August the Strong commissioned them to impress his guests. For the artists it is a special honour as well as an inspiration to deal with this old tradition. The figurine "Elephant" by Maximilian Hagstotz shows the pachyderm stomping through tall grass. With great sensitivity and the finest handiwork, the figurine has been given the details that give it a lifelike expression. The figurine "Elephant" with a height of 33 cm is therefore almost as impressive as the animal that gives it its name. As a gift with a long tradition and unique craftsmanship, the "Elephant" made of Meissen porcelain will delight every recipient.
