The figurine "Lion Group, White" by the artist Erich Hösel from 1939 shows a pair of lions made of white MEISSEN® porcelain. The sculpture's richly detailed depiction suggests a tender interaction between lion and lioness. The figure in delicate white joins the lively and varied world of figurines from MEISSEN®. Today, as in the past, animal figurines are a popular decorative object. Whether elephant, lion or exotic birds - even at the time of Augustus the Strong, animal figurines, such as the sculpture "Lion Group", were a masterpiece of craftsmanship at MEISSEN®.
