$6,950.00

The Collection: Directional Clarity

Design Concept:

The white tiger is a divine mythological beast that guards the cardinal compass direction of the West in ancient Chinese astrology.  Represented here in a mighty pose, the tiger stands above an orb tastefully tinted with notes of amber, and etched with the etchings of ancient astrological maps.  The piece comes from one of six in the small but powerful 2018 LIULI collection that pays homage to the place that ancient astrology in modern culture and art.  In folklore, this guardian deity has been named Jian Bing and, according to legend, its tail would turn white when reaching the age of 500.  When correlated with the five principles system of Chinese geomancy, represents the metal element—also the autumn season.  Representing these qualities, the white tiger embodies the spirit of kingly nobility, appearing only when a king rules with absolute virtue or when there is peace in the world.

虎出西方,西方颜色为白,属性是金,金,含有坚毅、坚定、刚烈、稳固、闪耀的寓意,如同虎,作为森林之王,威猛勇敢,一往直前,所到处,无不是的虎啸生风,披靡天下。对于虎的刻画,着重体现在神兽的肌体表现。准确解析虎的身体结构,进一步将神威的气质赋予作品。创作表达“威而不怒,猛而不凶”,神兽的力量之美和守护精神一览无遗。

 

Roar of the Tiger

Raising the elements with a mighty roar,
heaven and earth quake.
Atop the westerly summit,
in command of the world below,
the white tiger leads with unfaltering steps.
Ahead, a peaceful journey.

虎威风啸

虎啸生风,
引动天地;
西巅之上,
披靡天下。
步歩平顺,
好前程。
