2022 Year of the Tiger Wealth Bowl
Chinese geomancy, or feng shui, holds that to attract good fortune, the display of a generous open bowl, preferably with an element of gold, is prescribed. Our wealth bowl’s wide proportions and gilded rim satisfy these wealth-attracting requirements in elegant fashion.
A fearsome tiger prowls the 24K gilded medallion in the centre of the 2022 edition wealth bowl, surrounded by a lively frieze of the twelve animals engaged in the Great Race.
Folk tales recount the oriental zodiac's origins with the story of the Great Race, called by the deity the Jade Emperor to assign each year in the 12-year cycle an animal in the order they reached him by crossing a river. First past the post was the Rat, then the Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
A crimson composite resin display stand incised with stylised waves, rocks and clouds is included.
Included is a H4cm x 6cm landscape format engraving plate for personalisation.
