Plaque

(7228G)  Four Gentlemen


The Four Gentlemen plaque highlights plum blossom, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum; plants that are often featured in Chinese paintings and poetry. The motifs represent the four seasons - winter, spring, summer and autumn, suggesting the idea of nature's perpetual cycle of change.

Behind the plaque is a poem 'An Ode to the Gentlemen', an elegant composition that complements the visual presentation on the front, elaborating on noble virtues.

Plum blossom: Withstanding blustery gale and sleet in winter, plum blossoms prosper in harsh conditions, heralding the arrival of spring.

Orchid: With its stunning beauty, the orchid attracts admirers from near and far. This flower is compared to insight and noble virtues, admired and appreciated even when hidden.

Bamboo: Pliant yet strong, bamboo is likened to qualities of resilience and integrity.

Chrysanthemum: Chrysanthemum has long been revered as the symbol of simplicity and perfection.
