The longevity lock has been embedded to the the temple of ‘Hard Speaker’, shown below which is also known as the “Baijiabao lock”, which a baby wears on its hand or neck, to express people’s good wishes that the lock will bring health and good luck to the child.
While, in model ‘Travel Mind’, Chinese dragons are used to symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it. From the Han dynasty onward, it became a potent emblem of imperial power and subsequently marked the birth of a great man or dynasty.
In ‘Clean Thing’ two elements are combined together: the peony and clouds. Chinese flower symbols represent the natural nectar that brings growth, fulfillment and new, prosperous beginnings into our lives. The esteemed Peony
on the frames temple is one of the most exquisite flowers, a symbol for nobility and value. The peony became popular in the imperial palaces during the Sui and Tang dynasties, and earned the title of the “king of flowers.” A symbol of spring, it is also used as a metaphor for female beauty and reproduction. Pictured in full bloom, the peony symbolizes peace.
While the clouds Clouds, sometimes referred to as “auspicious clouds” (xiangyun 祥云), represent the heavens and also “good luck” because the Chinese word for cloud (yun 云) is pronounced the same as yun (运) meaning “luck” or “fortune”.
Clouds are repeated within the eye frame to symbolize never-ending fortune.
