Collection: Embrace the World (The Dragon Throne)
At the heart of Chinese culture is the lesson of humility. In this thought-provoking collection, artists use a seemingly simple subject—a throne—to invoke contemplation and insight on questions of power and responsibility. Unlike other art pieces that boldly proclaim power, this series commands a different type of respect—one that acknowledges the wisdom of thousands of years of legacy and rule. In “Embrace the World,” the heavy weight and significance of a throne stresses ultimate responsibility and the burden that befalls those who possess strength and power. Upon reflection, found in the depths of the translucent crystal medium used here, the wisdom gained is that ultimate power lies in humility and an empathetic and compassionate embrace of the world in its entirety.
