Herend Reserve Madonna & Child

Please allow 7-10 days to ship.tooltip Free Shipping

Herend’s Madonna & Child is based on a Gothic wooden statue from (circa) 1420 called the Second Madonna of Toporc which is housed in the Hungarian National Gallery. The porcelain version made its debut in 1940 when artist Kata Gacser reinterpreted the image for the manufactory. In 2009, this figurine is being introduced for the first time in a mantle of forget-me-nots. Based on medieval legend, the pairing of the Myosotis pattern (botanical Latin for forget-me-not)with this figurine has significance beyond the purely aesthetic. Legend has it that the Christ child was sitting on Mary’s lap one day and said that he wished that future generations could see the beauty of her eyes. He touched her eyes and then waved his hand over the ground and the blue of her eyes appeared forever in the form of the forget-me-not. It takes 3 painters a combined total of 48 hours to create this figurine. Handmade and handpainted porcelain from Herend of Hungary, accented with 24k gold. Limited edition of 250.

Measures 5" w x 4" d x 22" h.
