From the very beginning, the art-loving elector's ambition was to emulate the Asians. In the early 18th century, the gaze of European noble courts and their artists turned to China, at the time synonymous with sophistication and luxury. In 1708, he gave Johann Friedrich Böttger eight models of white Chinese figures as models for the Meissen production. This group of figures included the "Budhai Ho-Shang", the God of Contentment, which Böttger moulded in white Meissen porcelain around 1713. Now the happy 11.5 cm high "Buddha" is celebrating its premiere again in the Limited Edition - this time with a more discreet gold decoration specially developed for it on fine white Meissen porcelain.
