Mythology

Western spiritual traditions have been richly sourced by MEISSEN® artists, both Christianity and classical mythology giving rise to works of consummate craftsmanship.

Be they sensuously elegant female entities representing the Muses, voluptuous spirits embodying the Arts or any of the beautiful dignified Graces, the characters and symbols of Classical Antiquity are lent intricate shape and enchanting colour in Meissen Porcelain®.

As well as reflecting the sense of identity of a given age from Rococo to Classicism, such figures are also imbued with the imaginative powers of Meissen’s artists, who have always applied their own formal idioms to classical subject-matter.
