Saint George and The Dragon.
Sculptor Alfredo Llorens.
Porcelain Type Gloss.
Limited Edition 350 pcs.
NOTES: Saint George and The Dragon. Limited edition, gloss finish porcelain sculpture of St. George on horseback as victor over the dragon, in green, blue and white hues. Saint George is the prototype of the medieval knight and one of the most venerated saints of Europe. Artists of the LladrÃ³ High Porcelain workshop have created this spectacular interpretation of his legendary adventure with the dragon in a limited edition which stands out for its dynamism and the technical virtuosity of its execution. The scene shows the hero fighting with a fierce creature in order to free the kingÂ´s daughter, who was to be sacrificed to satisfy the demands of the monster. In the decoration of the piece, the richness of enamels stands out, with roughly twenty different tones applied to the dragon and the depth of textures accentuating the modelling and providing it with volume. In contrast, the knight displays more gentle treatment, softened by his light skin and Apollonian features. This contrast is reinforced by the white horse, a symbol of the nobility, bravery and loyalty necessary to defeat evil..

Saint George and The Dragon
Porcelain Figurine by Lladro
Lladro was founded in 1953 when Juan, Jose, and Vicente, three brothers born of local farmers and endowed with great artistic talent, formed a small family company in the Valencian village of Almacera, Spain. Since then, Lladro has undergone an amazing metamorphosis from an artisan workshop to a huge firm of international scope enjoying continual growth. The company management has remained in the hands of the Lladro family, the owners of the firm, since its inception.
The creative team started out by adapting styles from past eras, but it was not long before certain characteristics appeared that would soon shape what was to become the unique Lladro style.
