The Collection: Unstoppable Faith
Age of the Rising Dragon is inspired by the mythical creature of the water dragon, mentioned in the I Ching. Triumphant, mighty and imposing, the dragon lifts its body to emerge from the sea. The green hue of this crystal dragon figurine appears to be of a single color, but is actually a blend of various shades of green carefully selected to mimic the appearance of jade. Streams of liuli produced in the firing process evoke the motion of rolling waves and clouds stirred by the wind of the dragon's ascent. In this piece, liuli's ability to impart a sense of motion to a static object is on full display.
