The five-clawed dragon, emblem of imperial authority, holds the viewer’s attention in this unique decorative object. Writhing on a field of clouds, surrounded by a band of meander patterns and set within an octagonal wood frame, the impressively sculpted dragon is richly gilded in 24K gold, its eyes picked out in faceted red stones.
Designed for wall mounting, the plaque’s integral strut allows for display on horizontal surfaces as well.
Included is a 3cm x 10.5cm engraving plate for personalisation.
About the collection
The exoticism and lofty symbolism of oriental style, legacy of a millennia-old continuous civilisation, provides an opulent counterpoint to the restraint of contemporary aesthetics.
