Crystal Gourd or Hulu, Feng Shui, Happiness Lies Ahead

$760.00

The Collection: Buoyed by Spring Light

Design Concept:

Heavily laid with traditional cultural motifs and Chinese aesthetics symbolizing good fortune, this piece is among its collection’s most classic interpretations of the beloved spring season.  Its central hulu figure stands erect on a rich ancient gold Sycee—both symbolizing richness and fruitfulness.  Flanking the sycee base are ruyi symbols representing the coming of good fortune.  With daffodil flowers and floral embellishments sculpted throughout in masterful positive relief, this baroque-like Chinese artwork is deeply steeped in traditional symbolism and blessings.  “Happiness Lies Ahead" makes for an excellent gift to family members or anniversary, conveying ultimate well wishes.

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 status.)". 

葫芦,取福与禄的好口彩。设计上,葫芦迭放于元宝上,有喜上加喜之意。而底座的元宝,两侧辅以如意头造型点缀,增添富贵呈祥祝愿。作品以水仙花作为葫芦造型的主元素。水仙花,芬芳清新,素洁幽雅,自古以来就将其与兰花、菊花、菖蒲并列为花中「四雅」。

 

Happiness Lies Ahead

Topped with fortune,
great luck and advantage,
spring shines its light
on all the good
happening before our eyes.

好事在前

福禄在上
大吉大利
绽放春光美好
好事
歷歷在眼前。
