The animal repertoire of the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg encompasses two dozen elephants. Most of them were designed by the Thuringian sculptor August Göhring. The grouping includes this 23 centimetre majestic female elephant named Djamila. Since 2002 also created in bisque porcelain in the master workshops. The unglazed body underlines the richness of detail of the expressive figure and the matt white surface brings out the sculptural qualities particularly well.
