Nao porcelain sculptures are hand crafted in Valencia, Spain where pioneers in the European porcelain industry have been creating timeless works of art since the company's inception in 1953. This blend of old-world craftsmanship and the latest ceramic technology ensures that each individual Nao sculpture is finished to perfection and will be cherished for generations to come. Nao's extensive collection of more than 300 sculptures captures the unforgettable moments of life including motherhood, weddings, childhood, falling in love, the joy of pets, the beauty of nature, religion and much more. Both gift-givers and discriminating collectors alike will appreciate the quality and attention to detail that signifies each and every Nao sculpture. Nao, part of the Lladro group, is sold in more than 122 countries around the world.
A sweet image of devotion, the Nao Girl Praying figurine features a young girl preparing for her first communion. She stands in an attitude of prayer, wearing the traditional white dress and veil with a rosary around her wrist. With its tone of private joy and reverence, the piece makes a lovely solo display or complement to a collection. The sculpture is handmade from fine porcelain in the famous Lladro studios of Spain with flowing lines and precise details. The coloring, which is done by hand, is both subtle and sure and includes tiny touches to the girl's finest features. A glossy overglaze catches the light while adding a layer of protection. The figurine bears the Nao stamp on its underside and stands approximately 9 inches high.--Emily Bedard
