Fairytale Figure

Meissen Fairytale Figurines

The “Fairytale” collection is Peter Strang’s expressive interpretation of classic Brothers Grimm characters and themes. Strang’s sculptures translate the at times sinister appeal of the traditional tales into cheerful figurines with childlike simplicity, reminiscent of sketches from an artist’s atelier. The use of simple, geometric figurines – beads for hair, cubes and rectangles as torsos, and oblongs for hands – sets the distinctive style of the collection, which finds its inspiration in expressionist painting. Right down to the detailed brushwork that leaves individual strokes discernible, the diligent craftsmanship and almost childlike decorations emphasize the cheerful character of the fairy-tale figurines.
