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

$390.00

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)". 

葫蘆,取福與祿的好口彩。

作品《纳福承禄八方春》,取古典的如意造型。四个葫芦,有四方齐聚、八面承纳福禄之意,在美学上,对称的体现,亦展一种和谐之美。

设计上,葫芦瓶口以水浪纹层层环绕不绝,因风水上水主财,故作品寓有财源滚滚,福禄不止的吉祥祝福。

作品颜色的晕染,丝丝扣扣,循序递进,高浮雕的造型,让葫芦与水环高低层叠,环环相扣,琉璃的厚薄变化,让作品在光影下,又呈另番风景,是既立体又极具现代的创作风格。
