ANTIQUE DRESDEN FIGURE - EUROPA AND THE BULL - ZEUS - GREEK MYTHOLOGY - GERMANY:
$758.00


This antique Dresden Germany figurine is of a lady sitting on a bull --- the Greek mythological story goes that Europa saw the bull (which Zeus had transformed himself into) while she was gathering flowers; she caressed his flanks and eventually got onto his back. Zeus took that opportunity and ran to the sea and swam with her on his back to the island of Crete. He then revealed his true identity and Europa became the first queen of Crete. Zeus later recreated the shape of the white bull in the stars, which is now known as the constellation Taurus.


The figurine measures approximately 9 3/4 incheshigh, 8 inches long and 5 inches in width making it a large and impressive piece. The handcrafted details of the lady and the bull are stunning and show the artistic craftmanship of the German makers. As can be seen in the pictures, all fingers are intact, right wing on the putti has been repaired, but otherwise no cracks on this outstanding piece of porcelain. On the base is the Dresden - Carl Thieme backstamp with the wording \"Dresden\".
