With this unique symbolic power, the sculpture "Chinese Zodiac Dragon" is an excellent gift. Maria Walther was inspired by the legend, which tells that the mythological Jade Emperor called the animal kingdom to a race. The first twelve animals to cross the finish line were rewarded by being included in the Chinese horoscope. The mighty dragon was expected to be the first to cross the finish line, but on his way, he passed a village that was suffering from drought. So he let it rain before continuing on his way, which is why he reached the finish line as the fifth animal. In 2021, MEISSEN artist Maria Walther dedicates herself to the twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs and interprets them with a modern contemporary design language that shows off the brilliant white Meissen porcelain to particularly impressive effect. Maria Walther's 12.5 cm high sculpture "Chinese Zodiac Dragon" is a real eye-catcher with deep symbolic meaning in your interior.
