Design Concept:

The dragon represents the eastern direction and the color blue; it’s also associated with the element wood, since trees absorb the positive energy of heaven and earth, lending them the dragon-like qualities of strength, majesty, and longevity. The dragon is powerful, dignified, honorable and embodies an inextinguishable spirit. In this design, the dragon’s scales and claws shift with the casual motion of its elegant form. The head is raised, the body soars into the auspicious clouds; the tail rises upwards with power and poise, and was the most challenging part to cast. Overall, this piece conveys a palpable sense of aspiration and latent energy.

Associated with the four quadrants of the vault of heaven are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise of the North; in the center is the Qilin (unicorn). Each region corresponds to one of the five elements: metal (west), wood (east), water (north), fire (south), and earth (center). Moving across the night sky, the stars connect all life to the five elements. When the universe and elements are aligned, harmony ensues.

龍出東方,東方顏色為青,屬性是木,因木具向陽性,吸收天地正氣生長,如同龍,其強盛、軒昂、向榮,更寓意“生生不息”。作品中的青龍,鱗爪飛揚之間,體態飄逸,動作悠然。 靈動的尾巴,除了展現脫蠟鑄造技法的困難度外,亦展現祥龍奮起之姿,頭部昂起,身軀騰起雲端,在球體上有祥雲刻紋,整體作品傳達積極追求夢想,蓄勢待發的能量。


Rise of the Dragon

From the east rises the sun,
and the dragon atop a cloud.
Formidable and mighty,
casting glory on all creatures below.
Azure clouds across boundless sky,
all is within grasp, all is right.
