$880.00

The Collection: The Heart Points To The Future

Design Description:

The Black Tortoise is one of the five mythical creatures. It corresponds to the water element, the winter season, the direction north and the color black. Also referred to as the Dragon Tortoise or the Tortoise Snake, it symbolizes the ancient Chinese god of the North and a water deity. Because of its life length, the tortoise is also a symbol of health and longevity.

In this piece Black Tortoise is depicted couched within a sphere representing the universe, surrounded by crashing waves, creating a sense of dynamism and vitality. Purple is the color of the emperor and imperial family, as well as the color of the Emperor Star (Polaris) situated in the northern constellation. The deep purple hue of this piece imbues Black Tortoise with a sense of grace and noble mystery.

Associated with the four quadrants of the vault of heaven are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise of the North; in the center is the Qilin (unicorn). Each region corresponds to one of the five elements: metal (west), wood (east), water (north), fire (south), and earth (center). Moving across the night sky, the stars connect all life to the five elements. When the universe and elements are aligned, harmony ensues.

玄武,玄武是一种由龟和蛇组合成的一种灵物,又可称龙龟或龟蛇,五行属水, 代表北方的灵兽,形象是黑色,代表季节是冬季,为祥瑞与健康长寿的象徵。

此作品用象徵宇宙的圆形做主体造型,其玄武的身体安稳地据一席之地,由动态的波浪水纹环绕,形成生生不息的生命力与流动感。紫色为古代皇家与帝王的象徵,也是北方星宿紫微星所在,作品用紫色近黑创作,赋予玄武雍容高贵的神秘感。

五相,东青龙、西白虎、南朱雀、北玄武、中麒麟,安定人心,信心的镇守与护佑。古老的东方智慧,指引人们前往美好和谐的未来。
