The Enrich collection is inspired by a deep and profound love for nature. It draws from classical Chinese roots of revering the land and all the riches it has to offer. “Verdant Layers of Fortune,” shows that on a grander and more eye-opening scale than any other piece in the series. A butterfly perches on the mountain peak of a melon, symbolizing the diversity of life. The melon mimics mountain scenery, containing there all the elements of a Chinese landscape painting (from ink wash to mountain-and-water contrast). “Verdant Layers” bestows luck on future generations, giving a blessing in the form of love and respect for great and fertile land.
The phrase “gua die mianmian” appears often in the Shijing (Classic of Poetry). It means inextinguishable, to flourish and prosper across generations. Whether gifting to coworkers, friends, or elders, the message of this visually appealing design is unmistakable.
This design is sturdy, bold, and rich as if containing the everlasting waters of life. The upper half shows the melon’s stem and vines, reaching and climbing, symbolizing the abundance of life and the nourishment bestowed upon us by the earth. Perched upon the highest point is a butterfly, symbolizing the diversity of life. As a whole, this piece represents nature’s ultimate treasure.
The flow of liuli streams and air bubbles within the bottle gourd gives life to the sculpture; the gourd and vines are layered in various shades of green to give the design dimension. As a whole, the sculpture recalls elements of mountain and water from a landscape painting, elegant and fortuitous. The butterfly perched at the top of the gourd evokes the delicate style of Song painting.
The bottle gourd has often used as a receptacle. It symbolizes fulfillment and fortune. Crisscrossed vines extend in verdant green, reaching out to future generations and bestowing luck.
