Herend is known for its long history of producing the finest hand-painted porcelain worldwide. Herend’s trademark fishnet pattern design, which is most popular in the U.S., originated in 1858 when an artist intrigued with a Chinese plate’s fish scale design painted it onto a rooster figurine’s breast to imitate feathers. Each Herend figurine is handmade in Hungary.
Rather than turning away, this moose is making sure he has been spotted. He has always been proud of his antlers because he knows that he is unique among the deer family for having broad, palmate (open-hand shaped) antlers rather than the twig-like antlers his cousins on the family tree exhibit. Plus, he knows the ladies are very size-conscious during courtship. Now that his antlers have been painted in gold, combined with a fascinating, ombré fishnet treatment on his body, he is confident that no other bull will match him for style this mating season.
