This hedgehog figurine was designed by Lisa Larson in 1979 for Gustavsberg and is limited to 2,200 pieces. Lisa Larsson partnered with NK, a long-established department store in Stockholm, to release a series of ceramic sculptures entitled Utrotningshotade Djur (Endangered Animals), one each year, for six years starting in 1975. A portion of the sales is donated to WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature).

The series includes designs of a lynx, a golden eagle, a gray seal, a bison, a hedgehog (limited to 2,200 pieces), an otter, and a peregrine falcon. All of them are limited to around 2000 pieces, but this hedgehog is one of the most popular in the series.

Although it has a sharp expression at first glance, it has a rounded softness overall, making it a work that harmonizes tension and relaxation. There is a sense of realistic expression, which is rare in Lisa Larson's style. Lisa Larson's work is characterized by the fact that she deforms even cats and lions, but she maintains a certain distance from her own style by modeling endangered animals in a way that conveys their true appearance. I can tell. Even so, the needles on the back are not drawn in a straight line, but are intentionally rounded, which gives a sense of Lisa Larson.

This is a complete item in its original condition. There are stretch marks caused by the manufacturing process at the base of the legs on the back. This item is under the glaze, so it is not a scratch from use, but a scratch caused during firing. The dents seen on the soles of the feet are not chips, but dents called ``thread soles'' that occur when the pottery is separated from the potter's wheel.

A world-renowned ceramic artist representing Sweden. Born in the village of Härlunda, in the Älmhult district of Kronoberg county in the Småland region of southern Sweden.

When she was young, she aspired to be a clothing designer, but after enrolling at Gothenburg University of the Arts, she studied ceramics.
