From The Collection: Directional Clarity 

Design Concept:

As one of the five classic mythical creatures that guard each of the cardinal directions in Chinese astrology, the dragon is arguably the most commonly represented in popular culture.  This piece is the azure dragon (or qinglong) and comes from LIULI's 2018 collection “Directional Clarity.”  It represents the East and has also been named Meng Zhang in folklore.  Here the dragon is sculpted in a confident and graceful pose, carved into a celestial orb that is representative of the heavens and carrying etchings of ancient astrological maps.  When associated with the five principles system of Chinese Feng Shui, the dragon can represent the element of wood—or, similarly, the season of spring.  As one of the five divine guardians, the azure dragon possesses a lively and energetic spirit, embodying the qualities of strength, virtue, and benevolence.

Rise of the Dragon

From the east rises the sun,
and the dragon atop a cloud.
Formidable and mighty,
casting glory on all creatures below.
Azure clouds across boundless sky,
all is within grasp, all is right.

龍起雲生

日出東方,
龍起雲生;
至大至剛,
萬物爭榮。
青雲萬里盡在握,
好人間。
