Benevolence of the Qilin (Guardian, Qilin of the Center)


The Collection: Directional Clarity

Design Concept: 

The final and equally significant of the five classic deities that guard the five directions in Chinese astrology is the yellow Qilin.  In ancient literature this mythological beast—also “Kirin” in Japan—could only best be understood as a “unicorn” in the West.  It is a combination of all five creatures and represents the central “direction.”  Here, it is sculpted just like the others in its collection, Directional Clarity, above a celestial orb etched with the runes of ancient astrological maps.  The divine creature embodies benevolence, kindness, and a grounded sense of virtue that protects all creatures of Earth.

Benevolence of the Qilin

Sauntering at the brink of heaven,
delivering flowers in its wake,
the Qilin contains within benevolence for all the world's creatures.
With an enlightened soul and impenetrable body,
it is an eternal protector,
a central force of good.
