“Rising New Era” is the highlight in LIULI Crystal Art’s 2019 new collection “Buoyed by Spring Light”. Sculpted in exquisite detail of nine fish with sharp contrasts in both negative and positive relief, each fish symbolizes the blessing of an inextinguishable life force come together.
Nine fish appear in various formations as they swim upward as one with vigor and positivity. In Mandarin, nine is homonymous with the word for long – here it symbolizes prolonged prosperity and longevity. Fish is homonymous with the word for abundance – here it symbolizes profusion year after year and a lifetime of fortune. The open circle in the base is where fortune gathers. It symbolizes the blessing of an inextinguishable life force. Sculpturally, the tails of the nine fish fan out like a flower, each petal spreads outward with organic energy. This dynamic display is testament to the experience and mastery.
