Wall painting, Kingfishers and insects, signet Limited Masterpieces, lim., 23 x 23 cm

The onus at MEISSEN® is generally on painting native birds, and yet the splendid pair hunting insects in the reeds here are well-nigh exotic in appearance. Our porcelain painter discovered these kingfishers with their heads, backs and wings in cobalt-blue and rust-red bellies by the river Elbe. She was able to observe through the undergrowth how, with their almost wedge-shaped bodies and long pointed beaks, they repeatedly performed somersaults as they plunged into the water almost vertically in order to catch insects, small fish, crabs and tadpoles. The artist captures their taking off so vividly in the middle of the wall plaque that we actually experience the splashing of the water as they home in. Encircling the motif around the frame is a gently stylised spray of leaves and berries. Reeds and foliage are coated with platinum in such a manner that they appear to glint in the morning sun. The setting is so authentic as a result that one fears the birds might dive under at any moment.
