The "Leopard" by Maximilian Hagstotz belongs to the group of figurines "Big Five", which aqre characterized by their slightly angular shape. The figurines are based on African wooden sculptures. As the only figurine from the "Big Five", the Leopard itself did not receive a decoration, but the underground. This highlights the graceful body of the moving animal and skilfully puts it in the limelight. The extremely filigree decoration is not only full of symbolic power, but also testifies to perfectly executed craftsmanship. The detailed elaboration of the figurine "Leopard" reflects the elegance and power of the animal. The "Big Five" group of figurines represents an interesting combination of tradition and modernity in the Meissen porcelain manufactory. MEISSEN - a very special gift.
