Lladro Egyptian Geese 9" x 22.75"
Base included. Limited Edition 2,000 units The source of inspiration for this gaggle of geese is the Meidum Geese frieze that is part of the decoration of the mastaba of Nefermaat and his wife Atet, in Meidum, Egypt dated in the 4th Dynasty (ca. 2575 to 2467 BC). The geese are seen walking and pecking among the vegetation growing by the river. We could place the scene on the banks of the Nile, where the papyrus plant is abundant. This particular plant was chosen for its symbolism in Egyptian culture.
Made in gres, this piece stands out for the wealth of the enamels used in its decoration. All the details in the geeses plumage have been made with various hues of enamels.
