2024 marks the appearance of the dragon in this 12-year zodiac cycle. The most revered mythological creature in the cultural sphere of east Asia, the dragon represents all that is noble and beneficent. It is seen as a master of weather and water, and a benign protective force.
Unmistakeable in inspiration and undeniably contemporary, Royal Selangor’s design for this new zodiac cycle is driven by its origin myth of the Great Race. Distinctive motifs of stylised waves, rocks and clouds from the hem of imperial dragon robes allude to the Jade Emperor and the myth’s important river crossing, whilst circular and rectilinear forms reference the Chinese concept of heaven and earth. Layered with depth and meaning, these collectibles grace the home as stylishly as they mark corporate occasions.
