Crystal Butterfly and Gourd, Hulu, Verdant Layers of Fortune

$760.00

The Collection: ENRICH

Design Concept:

The Enrich collection is inspired by a deep and profound love for nature.  It draws from classical Chinese roots of revering the land and all the riches it has to offer.  “Verdant Layers of Fortune,” shows that on a grander and more eye-opening scale than any other piece in the series.  A butterfly perches on the mountain peak of a melon, symbolizing the diversity of life.  The melon mimics mountain scenery, containing there all the elements of a Chinese landscape painting (from ink wash to mountain-and-water contrast).  “Verdant Layers” bestows luck on future generations, giving a blessing in the form of love and respect for a great and fertile land.

  • The phrase “gua die mian mian appears often in the Shijing (Classic of Poetry). It means inextinguishable, to flourish and prosper across generations. Whether gifting to coworkers, friends or elders, the message of this visually appealing design is unmistakable.
  • This design is sturdy, bold and rich as if containing the everlasting waters of life. The upper half shows the melon’s stem and vines, reaching and climbing, symbolizing the abundance of life and the nourishment bestowed upon us by the earth. Perched upon the highest point is a butterfly, symbolizing the diversity of life. As a whole, this piece represents nature’s ultimate treasure.
  • The flow of liuli streams and air bubbles within the bottle gourd give life to the sculpture; the gourd and vines are layered in various shades of green to give the design dimension. As a whole, the sculpture recalls elements of mountain and water from a landscape painting, elegant and fortuitous. The butterfly perched at the top of the gourd evokes the delicate style of Song painting.
  • The bottle gourd is often used a receptacle. It symbolizes fulfillment and fortune. Crisscrossed vines extend in verdant green, reaching out to future generations and bestowing luck.

作品設計理念:

  • 《詩經》中,數次出現過“瓜瓞綿綿”的講述,表達生生不息的概念。整件作品青青出水,極具觀賞性,又有萬古長青,福澤後代的美好意境。無論是送與合作夥伴,還是親朋長輩,都是很好的祝福。
  • 作品穩重、寬厚、飽滿,仿佛承載無限的生命活水。上部瓜蒂藤蔓攀爬,是生命不斷向上、繁衍,顯示生命的無限盎然和大地滋養的能量。最高處,蝴蝶飛來,表現生命的多彩。作品,仿佛一處極盡能量的風水寶地
  • 琉紋與氣泡,構成瓠瓜內裡的源源不斷的生機
  • 瓠瓜與藤蔓,以層次不同的綠色暈染開,上下整體結構合看,似乎寫意的山水。而蝴蝶立於瓜蒂頂部,又令人聯想到宋畫工筆小品。整件作品意境雅致又兼具美好寓意瓠瓜能容,圓融飽滿,納福氣滿滿;藤蔓交錯,碧翠青青,綿延後代,子孫多福
