It takes one Herend painter 4 days to create this masterpiece which consists of 40 different components. Only a complex figurine could properly convey a coral reef- known as the busiest neighborhood in the ocean. Often referred to as the rainforest of the sea, the diversity and colors of the animals inhabiting a coral reef is unmatched anywhere else in the aquatic realm.
While many theories abound, there are two popular thoughts as to why the fish in a coral reef are so colorful and textured. First, the reef and its inhabitants reflect so many colors that the fish are just doing their part to blend in with their surroundings and be less obvious to predators. Their colors act as camouflage. A second reason is that the colors and patterns allow fish to identify friend and foe and find their own kind in the crowded reef environment.
With Herend’s tropical reef, the viewer has stumbled on a symphonic fishnet celebration with blue, key lime, and butterscotch fish dancing through the welcoming arms of a key lime coral dappled with 24K gold. Conch shells, sea snails, brain coral and starfish, while not as exuberant as their fish friends, add their own style of fun to the neighborhood party. Limited Edition Size 100. (8.5"L X 13.5"H)
