Crystal Gourd or Hulu, Feng Shui, Happiness Lies Ahead

$470.00

The Collection: Buoyed by Spring Light

Design Concept:

Heavily laid with traditional cultural motifs and Chinese aesthetics symbolizing good fortune, this piece is among its collection’s most classic interpretations of the beloved spring season.  Its central hulu figure stands erect on a rich ancient gold Sycee—both symbolizing richness and fruitfulness.  Flanking the sycee base are ruyi symbols representing the coming of good fortune.  With peony flowers and floral embellishments sculpted throughout in masterful positive relief, this baroque-like Chinese artwork is deeply steeped in traditional symbolism and blessings.  “Happiness Lies Ahead" makes for an excellent gift to one’s elders, conveying ultimate respect and well wishes.

The Chinese word for gourd, hulu (葫芦), has other auspicious associations as well.  In some dialects, the character hu (葫) has a similar pronunciation to fu (福) which means "happiness" or "good fortune".  Therefore, saying hulu (葫 芦) for gourd would sound similar to fulu (福禄) which means "happiness and rank (as in attaining a high government office)". 

Happiness Lies Ahead

Topped with fortune,
great luck and advantage,
spring shines its light
on all the good
happening before our eyes.

好事在前

福祿在上
大吉大利
綻放春光美好
好事
歷歷在眼前。
