A matt porcelain figurine inspired by one of the most fascinating Titans of Greek mythology, Atlas hold's up the cosmos shown in Lladró's signature gold lustre.
Son of Iapetus and the nymph Clymene, he led the rebellion of the Titans against Zeus and, as a punishment, he was condemned to hold up the sky on his shoulders for eternity. Countless legends exist about this strong man who bore the weight of the celestial spheres to keep them separate from the earth and maintain the balance of the universe. He is also attributed with great learning in mathematics and astrology.
Lladró is the leader in luxury porcelain since 1953 and have developed proprietary processes that resulted in a wide range of products and styles that is unparalleled in the world of porcelain. The brand still makes every piece in their workshop in Valencia, Spain.
