Design Concept

The paired guardian lions are accompanied by a ruyi scepter, their presence echoing the harmony between aspiration and fulfillment. Their embroidered balls, suspended in serene gaze or upward contemplation, evoke a sense of celestial balance. The leaping guardian lion, embodying vigor and yang, contrasts elegantly with its counterpart, the poised guardian lioness representing earth and yin. Together, they form a dance of duality, a harmonious interplay of forces. Adorned with ribbons and a suspended embroidered orb, the piece captures the essence of collaborative creation and a luminous future. The symbolism of the guardian lions, distinguished by the Tai Chi motif, reflects the timeless Eastern philosophy of cosmic balance and perpetual renewal. The complete form of the ruyi scepter, akin to an open window to destiny, bridges past, present, and future, offering a glimpse into a realm of boundless auspiciousness. And within the delicate intricacies of the embroidered orb lies a narrative of transformation, a journey from craftsmanship to clarity, each detail crafted with meticulous precision and reverence.

The embroidered ball in the middle can also rotate, symbolizing the turning of fortune. There's a folk saying, "When lions roll the embroidered ball, good things come afterward," considering both lions and embroidered balls as auspicious symbols. In this artwork, the embroidered ball hangs from a bowtie, while both lions gaze at it, symbolizing the concept of auspicious offerings and guarding wealth. From points to lines, from lines to three-dimensional round carvings, after twelve meticulous wax casting processes, it ultimately becomes clear and transparent.
