Limited Skull Edition 2016

Limited Skull Edition 2016

It is small, strong, fast, and inspires our minds: the hummingbird, a symbol of power, love, and a positive future. With 40 to 50 wing beats per second, this bird is one of the most agile creatures on Earth. The smallest member of the family measures just six centimetres – including beak and tail feathers. In 2016, the manufactory porcelain painters have immortalised a hummingbird with flowers on a handmade skull for the first time for the "Limited Skull Edition".
The craftsmanship of the fine, iridescent plumage is a testament to the skills of the porcelain painters. Each super fine brushstroke is done free-hand without a stencil. They chose a shimmering green broad-tailed hummingbird to be depicted 'in action', just the way it goes in search of food every day. The Hummingbird is very picky when it comes to food. The tireless nectar collectors are especially attracted to red and orange flowers. That's why the porcelain painters depicted it surrounded by a few particularly splendid blooming chrysanthemums. Each Skull in this 25-piece limited edition is a unique handmade piece and bears the personal signature of the craftsmen who were involved in its creation.
