Detailed description

Ceramic figure "Dragon"

Folk art and elaborate handicrafts from Uruguay: It all began in 1972 with "Artesania Rinconada" ("corner art") in domestic living rooms. Inspired by master artists, the children of Spanish emigrants created ceramic figures that are now sought-after collector's items. The items are fired several times, decorated with materials such as enamel glaze, gold and platinum in elaborate handwork rich in colour.

The effort that goes into these colourful ceramics is enormous. In a first step, the still soft cast base form is decorated with fine ornamental details. The first firing hardens it, then it is painted - again by hand - and decorative enamel glazes are applied. After further kiln cycles, gilding and platinum elements are finally applied - creating individual testimonies of the close connection between Latin American folk art and handicraft at the highest level.

The dragon symbolises power, strength and health and protects against evil spirits. Especially in China, it is revered for these qualities. There it also represents an important sign of the zodiac. Made of ceramic, multi-fired with an enamel glaze and 18-carat gold and lovingly hand-decorated in rich colours. Limited to 388 copies. Size approx. 30 x 15 x 24 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 5 kg. Each piece is unique.
