Allegorical Meissen figure group "Asia"


Allegorical Meissen figure group "Asia"

From the series "Four Continents". With plastic applied flowers and leaves, naturalistically designed base. Not far from a palm tree, sitting on a camel, a young oriental woman personifies the continent of Asia, wearing a white dress with a flower pattern, a purple coat, and a hood-like, elaborate head covering. In her left hand, she holds a censer, and in her right hand, a scepter. Polychrome painting with gold staffage. Either Johann Joachim Kaendler or a follower. Restored; crossed swords mark. Height 20.5 cm. The four allegories of the continents are arranged in Kaendler's taxas (1740-1748) according to November 20, 1745. A slightly modified model of the group "Asia" with varied posture was modeled by Johann Friedrich Eberlein in the summer of 1745 to 1747 as part of a cycle and under the supervision of Kaendler, and was part of the order of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna for the Russian court.
