A bold interpretation, the tianqiuping or celestial globe vase profile of the massive porcelain original is reimagined as a modern planar concave, with 24K gilding emphasizing the spectacular low relief sculpt of its proud three-clawed dragon. Unlike their brethren in occidental mythology, oriental dragons symbolise strength, benevolence, and the renewal of life, and are considered extremely auspicious.

The couplet on the vase’s reverse conjures the enormous sense of power attributed to the dragon, a force that brings balance and unites heaven and earth.

Based on a vase with lotus and dragon decoration in underglaze blue; Ming dynasty, Yongle reign (1403-1424)

Space on the reverse is available for personalisation, and a stand is included.
