The "Lion" from the year 2018 belongs to the figurine group "Big Five" of the young sculptor Maximilian Hagstotz, who for the first time in the long Meissen tradition of animal sculptures produced in a series. The extremely elaborate decoration emphasizes the mane of the lion and thus its characteristic appearance. The square shape and the decoration are inspired by African wood sculptures. The extremely filigree decoration is not only full of symbolic power, but also testifies to a perfectly executed craftsmanship. The contrast between the white Meissen porcelain and the black decoration emphasizes the strength and majestic posture of the figurine "Lion". Not only for lovers, this figurine represents a wonderful gift.
