While the hands are busy, the artistic mind wanders to dreams of a variation on a theme of fishnet. Not quite a revolt, but after 153 years of painting the fishnet pattern, the creative team at Herend wanted to spread their wings.  A chance to make a change at once both subtle and bold where a quick glance would still reflect the rhythmic pattern of fishnet but further scrutiny would reveal an altered state.  Similar to the way the internal mirrors of a kaleidoscope adjust reality and reflect things back in a new geometric fashion, the artists at Herend pushed fishnet to the furthest corners of their imagination to see what they could find.  Many new patterns were created and two were deemed dramatic enough to make their debut.

He is certainly proud enough to carry the premiere on his shoulders and, yet, it wasn’t just his cocky countenance that made the rooster the obvious choice for the kaleidoscope treatment.   Rather, it was an ability to close the circle since it was a long-lost relative, a rooster figurine in 1858, which first enticed a painter to dress a figurine in Herend’s signature fishnet pattern.
