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.

Inscribed on the vase’s reverse is a couplet conjuring the enormous sense of power attributed to the dragon, a force that brings balance and unites heaven and earth.
聚天合地納乾坤
舞雲馭風尊萬代

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

A stand is included with this item.

Space is available for personalisation.
