The swallow - a harbinger of spring. The swallow symbolizes hope and communication. It conveys the camaraderie and trust between partners that allows one to travel further and higher. In profile with wings outstretched, it glides gracefully across a pond with its head raised to welcome the wind and the future. The spring swallow opens its wings. In liuli, the effect is of unprecedented lightness. The rippled base pays homage to Monet’s abstract impressionist strokes. Under light and shadow, the liuli base design suggests a rippling pond in spring, adding interest to the play between swallow and light.
In spring, the swallow soars through mountains, fields, and lakes to spread its blessings to all; swallows nesting by the home is an auspicious sign. This versatile piece makes an ideal gift for friends and family.
