Limited Edition Gilt Azure Dragon LG
Size: H32.5cm including base x 29.5cm x 17cm
A limited edition of 500 individually numbered pieces worldwide.
Like the glow of the dawn it represents, opulent 24K gold bathes the Azure Dragon, the play of light across its scales further enhancing the liveliness of Xu Xiao Yong’s masterful sculpting. The magnificent dragon, an iridescent pearl of wisdom in its possession, coils through the heavens with consummate grace as it guards its realm.
As well as the break of day, this guardian of the east symbolises spring, and the element of wood. It embodies strength, honour and rejuvenation, and is attributed with the ability to create order from chaos. This limited edition is cast in fine pewter with 24K gilding, on a base of polished Nero Marquina marble.
Caring for stone
Wipe down the surface with mild soap and water using a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid the use of vinegar, bleach, or glass cleaners; the acid content will dull the surface. Similarly, avoid using scouring pads and abrasive cream cleaners.
