To imitate feathers

Charging Bull

The famous hand painted fishnet décor adorning these animals (from Herend porcelain manufactory) took form in 1858 when a Herend painter became inspired by a fish scale design he saw on a Chinese porcelain plate and painted a similar pattern onto a rooster figurine to imitate feathers. The rest is history.

This search @ pinterest is about Herend fishnet porcelain and this link (FIGURINES) was pretty useful to me.
