Bitter Melon Figurine (Journey of Life) - "Bittersweet"

$580.00

Artwork Description

The classic bitter melon is a crop symbolizing the dualities of life and nature.  As if it was a mythical fruit created by the sun and the moon, this melon represents more than a reverence for nature (as the rest of the Enrich collection does).  The bitter melon represents a distinctly Chinese philosophy on balance and harmony.  Here, “Bittersweet” is sculpted and colored to bring out that contrast.  Studio artists draw upon its bittersweet nature, alluding to the same feeling often given to one by life and nature.  The work reminds one to flourish in that delicate balance and enjoy all season through their moments, both bitter and sweet.

 

The Collection: ENRICH

 

Bittersweet

A constant stream of consciousness
nurtures the bitter gourd.
It tastes true to its name
with a lingering dry sweetness.

Life
oscillates between bitter and sweet.
Recognize
this taste of chan
that permeates heaven and earth.

心中甘味源源

源源心智
孕一顆苦瓜
道是苦
竟是甘美

人間永是
甘苦之中
悟覺
天地禪味
