The 6,5 cm large figurine of Meissen porcelain shows a "Penguin Dad". She is part of a two-piece group of figurines, which includes the "Pinguin Mother with Child". In the language of colour and form, this figurine is oriented towards the living model and thus captures its individual characteristics. The single figurine receives its own inner vitality in the skilled hands of Meissen's craftsmen. They are part of the long tradition of the Meissen animal sculptures, which were already created for August the Strong. The motifs range from native fauna to exotic jungle dwellers to these Arctic survivors. The figurine "Penguin Dad" is a wintry Christmas gift with a long tradition.
