The Collection: Chinese Zodiac Animals in Bright Florals | The Year of the Dragon
This crystal glass art figure, titled “So Spirited,” is an artwork of the most divine of all the zodiac signs in Chinese astrology—the dragon. The ultimate symbol of royalty, divinity and power, the dragon is the most iconic symbol of the Chinese people. Being well dignified and honorable, those born in the year of the dragon are well reputed and highly regarded. Being both humorously cute and fierce in this art piece, “So Spirited” is poised regally and artfully adorned with traditional Chinese paper-cutting artwork patterns. Each art piece is uniquely handcrafted, varying most with color and playing with light on any tabletop. Well suited for birthday occasions or simply celebrating someone’s birth year, the message the zodiac artwork sends is as sincere and as transparent as the glasswork itself.
传说，龙是具有强大的力量，龙岂只是龙，而是远古时代里东方世界里的想象寄托，是先人敬畏的对象； 一个超然的力量， 一与风云同生的生物，它什么都是，也什么都不是， 无所不能。琉璃工房永远用各种方式，形式描绘出龙的形象，让它威风八面，绵延不绝，生生不息。
Proud and bold,
I emerge from the light of rosy clouds,
Head raised, steps broad.
I draw attention under any circumstance,
The bona fide son of heaven,
In heaven or earth, there is nothing I can not do.
