This model of a Bohemian waxwing (bombyzilla garullus) was created for the inventory of the Japanese Palais of Augustus the Strong. As master modeller in the Meissen manufactory Kaendler had access to the royal menagerie of Castle Moritzburg to create lifelike bird models. The harmony to nature of the porcelain adaptions was explicitely asked by the King. Because the brilliant red ends of the birds wings appear like sealing wax this singing bird was given the name „wax wing“.
