Nymphenburg Porcelain Shrike Bird with Flowers of Life Painting
For the vibrant and collaborative Flowers of Life collection, Viennese designer Sebastian Menschhorn has selected pieces from Nymphenburg’s famed back catalog of animals and adorned them with wide swaths of a pattern reproduced from an ancient Oriental motif symbolizing growth and wealth. As the opulent Flowers of Life pattern flows over these graceful and unassuming animal forms, there is an elegant and thought-provoking beauty. Hand painted porcelain. Exquisite statuettes of a wide range of animals have long been a cornerstone of Nymphenburg’s repertoire and its renown. Centuries of experience and skill with impeccable finishes and traditional techniques such as underglaze painting make it possible for the Nymphenburg craftsmen to marshal the notoriously rigid and exacting medium of porcelain into soft and subtle renderings of scales and skin, fur and feathers. The result is a menagerie imbued with an inner life and exhibiting the kind of artistry that you simply will not find anywhere else.
