Crystal Feng Shui, Gourd or Hulu, Accept Fortune, Receive Blessings

$240.00

The Collection: Buoyed by Spring Light

Design Concept:

Much like its sister art piece, “Accept Fortune, Receive Blessings,” this minimalistic rendition of the classic four-hulu design draws its inspiration from the four seasons and the four cardinal compass directions of the Earth.  Doubling it makes a lucky number eight—representing many fortunes in the traditional Chinese aesthetic.  Combining the never-ceasing energy of waves, the artwork embodies a constant and infinite source of energy—a reminder of the celebration of the seasonal cycle and the energy that is innate within us all.  Smartly designed with negative space and minimalism, this piece makes for a chiq statement in any interior space.

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)". 

Accept Fortune, Receive Blessings

Fortune and happiness
convene from all four corners
bringing auspiciousness

To fortune,

and the propitious light of spring.
