Lladro African Savannah Wild Animals Sculpture in White by Ernest Massuet

$5,565per item


Sculpture in matte white porcelain animals from African savannah, adult female elephant that guides her group through a long path with an iroko wooden base. As an African proverb says: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go in company. When the dry season reaches the Savannah, the elephant females guide the herd on a thousand-year-old route in search of water. African Savannah is a masterpiece over one meter in length that stands out for its perfectly modelled shapes and the richness of textures that could only be achieved by the artists of Lladró. In their hands, porcelain is transformed into the rugged skin of the elephant, into the soft fur of the giraffes. A degree of realism that is heightened by the matte finish, which accentuates each fold. A piece that tells us about the value of wisdom handed down from old to young, such as the heritage of conservation and respect for nature and the environment. Base included.
