Crystal Art Mythical Dragon, Guardian-Azure Dragon of the East, Rise of the Dragon

$6,620.00

The Collection: Directional Clarity 

Design Concept:

As one of the five classic mythical creatures that guard each of the cardinal directions in Chinese astrology, the dragon is arguably the most commonly represented in popular culture.  This piece is the azure dragon (or qinglong) and comes from the 2018 collection “Directional Clarity.”  It represents the East and has also been named Meng Zhang in folklore.  Here the dragon is sculpted in a confident and graceful pose, carved into a celestial orb that is representative of the heavens and carrying etchings of ancient astrological maps.  When associated with the five principles system of Chinese geomancy, the dragon can represent the element of wood—or, similarly, the season of spring.  As one of the five divine guardians, the azure dragon possesses a lively and energetic spirit, embodying the qualities of strength, virtue, and benevolence.

龙出东方,东方颜色为青,属性是木,因木具向阳性,吸收天地正气生长,如同龙,其强盛、轩昂、向荣,更寓意“生生不息”。在琉璃工房的作品中,龙是经典的创作之一,
多年来,对于中国神龙的体态,琉璃工房有着长期的探索。
作品中的青龙,鳞爪飞扬之间,体态飘逸,动作悠然。头部昂起,身躯腾起云端,每一处刻画都体现琉璃工房多年功力。

 

Rise of the Dragon

From the east rises the sun,
and the dragon atop a cloud.
Formidable and mighty,
casting glory on all creatures below.
Azure clouds across boundless sky,
all is within grasp, all is right.

龙起云生

日出东方,
龙起云生;
至大至刚,
万物争荣。
青云万里尽在握,
好人间。
