Two fine porcelain art events on October 11 and 12 in the Bay Area will launch a national tour by Rosa Lladró. As the President of the Board of Lladró and the daughter of one of the three founding Lladró brothers, she will personally introduce Lladró’s exclusive “High Porcelain” works of art in San Francisco and Santa Clara. At the events, Rosa Lladró will unveil the High Porcelain version of “The Kiss,” inspired by Gustav Klimt’s painting. Retailing for $14,000, the sculpture fully reflects the realism and the passion of the scene, combined with fantasy from the epoch. This sculpture is exclusively available at signing events in 2007. 10% of proceeds from sales of this magnificent piece benefit Operation Smile.
