With the sculpture "Chinese Zodiac Horse", the MEISSEN artist Maria Walther dedicates herself to the legend of the twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs, which tells that the Jade Emperor invited the entire animal kingdom to a race. Discover the other animals in the "Chinese Zodiac" collection: rat, buffalo, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and the pig were also depicted in white by Maria Walther, which brings out the brilliance of Meissen porcelain in a unique way. The first twelve animals to reach the other bank of the river were to be given a place in the Chinese zodiac. The horse, depicted in the sculpture "Chinese Zodiac Horse", reached the opposite side of the river as the seventh animal after the snake. The sculptures by MEISSEN artist Maria Walther are as diverse as the history of the Meissen porcelain manufactory.
