A dramatically sculpted 3D eagle, flying across pine trees, brings this decorative object’s brush painting style to life. On its reverse, celebrated Tang poet Li Bai’s elegant phrase alludes to and enhances the subject matter.

The sentiment implied in this decorative piece, entitled ‘Riding On The Crest Of Success’ in Chinese, is that one requires far-sightedness to succeed in one’s career. It makes a meaningful gift, as, when presented, it is a wish that the recipient achieves their plans and dreams.

A stand is included.

The works of Li Bai 李白 have been acclaimed from his own day in the Tang dynasty (618 CE – 906 CE). Arguably Chinese literature’s most highly regarded poet, he is lauded for his effortless elegance of style, evocative themes and a celebration of the simpler pleasures of life.

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.
