This rooster is a figurine by Peter Strang, made in the year 1994. In its creation, the former chief sculptor references MEISSEN's illustrious tradition of animal representation and develops it in his inimitably expressive style. By purposefully reducing the rooster to a dynamic, flowing form, he imbues the figurine with energy, and gives it a contemporary aura. To that end, real gold adornment designed for the 2019 reissue catches the viewer's gaze and leads the eye across the entire figurine. During his 50 years at MEISSEN, Peter Strang set artistic standards that continue to influence the manufactory until today. In the year 2000, he received a Saxon Order of Merit and, in 2007, an Order of Merit from the Federal Republic of Germany.
