A monumental new Herend masterpiece

Painted with monumental falcons, the more than 170 cm high work of art, weighing more than 100 kg, can once again impress fans of exceptional masterpieces. It is safe to say that no one but the world’s largest porcelain manufactory is able to produce such a beautiful handmade porcelain piece.

Thanks to its artistic dedication and striving for continuous renewal, the Herend Porcelain Manufactory stood out from European porcelain manufactories as early as the 19th century. Today, it has become the world leader in porcelain making. Its name stands for excellence, uniqueness, high quality, artistic value, innovation, craftsmanship, elegance and luxury.

Herend has always been at the forefront of porcelain making, searching for challenges, tempting the almost impossible, and stretching the limits of porcelain as a material to create special, unique works of art.

Painted with monumental falcons, the more than 170 cm high work of art, weighing more than 100 kg, can once again impress fans of exceptional masterpieces. It is safe to say that no one but the world’s largest porcelain manufactory is able to produce such a beautiful handmade porcelain piece.

The ornamental fountain consists of 28 porcelain units, and the masters needed more than 1 year to make the white ware. The porcelain work of art consists of three main parts: the openwork double-walled pedestal, the openwork middle part, and the lid with Fo dog knob. The number of pierced holes is 3000.

The main theme of the decoration this time is sky predators, graceful falcons. Four pairs of falcons were designed and painted on the ornamental fountain: peregrine falcons, gyrfalcons and two pairs of saker falcons. All falcon species are protected, and considered as noble, royal hunters in all hunting cultures of the world without exception.

On one side is the peregrine falcon, the king of falcons, the noblest hunter. Every falconer’s dream, the fastest bird in the world can exceed a speed of 400 km/h during a fall flight. It can be found almost all over the Earth.

On two sides can be seen the saker falcon, the Turul. It is a very popular falcon species and one of the species most commonly used for falconry. It can be found in almost every part of the world. Its living spaces are in gently sloping and flat areas. It is extremely intelligent and can be used for hunting very effectively in mountains, on plains and even in desert conditions! It is a real all-rounder.

On the fourth side, the gyrfalcon is depicted. The gyrfalcon is the largest-bodied falcon species. The strictly protected bird is rarely used in hunting today, however, it can still be found among actively hunting falcons.

The falcons were depicted in one of their possible living spaces. The background colour of the vase emphasizes the green of nature and the gold motifs the life-giving power of sunlight. The connection of motifs with dynamic lines symbolizes the energetic dynamism of the flight of falcons. The detailed, painting-like scenes were completed with golden arabesques on a green background, taken from the masterpieces of oriental art. The painting of this amazing porcelain magic took nearly a thousand hours. The falcons were painted by a senior and a junior master painter, creating the porcelain sensation of 2020, this beauty that is unique in the world.
