It is a special honour as well as inspiration for MEISSEN artists to engage with the long tradition of animal figurines. The figurine "Rhinoceros" by Maximilian Hagstotz shows the naturalistic representation of a rhinoceros on 28 cm. The rich detail of the figurine bears witness to the incomparable craftsmanship, it makes the figurine "Rhinoceros" something very special. Animal figurines have been produced in the Meissen porcelain manufactory since the 18th century. Then as now, the lively and varied animal figurines are among the masterpieces of the manufactory's craftsmanship. The animal figurine is a beautiful gift that impresses just as much as the living animal.
