The design of the deeply symbolic figurine "Chinese Zodiac Pig", which is 12.5 cm high,is reduced to the essential, but plays with the limits of possibilities in porcelain design. According to legend, the Chinese Jade Emperor invited the entire animal kingdom to a race across a river. Since the pig took the last of the twelve places, it is also the last animal in the Chinese zodiac. Qualities attributed to the pig on the basis of the history of the Chinese Zodiac Signs are generosity, kindness and compassion. The figurine "Chinese Zodiac Pig" made of Meissen porcelain is therefore also an excellent gift. 2021, Maria Walther dedicates herself to the Chinese Zodiac Signs and interprets them with a modern contemporary design language that shows off the brilliant white Meissen porcelain to particularly impressive effect.
