This beautiful ivory stone features marbled veins of deep ochre throughout its base and across its back. There are also a few hints of black and cream. Carved in stunning detail on the top are two dragons holding a single pearl between them.
The dragon is a fairytale creature of vast significance in Chinese culture, often associated with the male spirit (yang), vigor, power, regeneration, fertility and luck. They often function as guardians. Two dragons playing with a pearl, as shown here, represents thunder, and supposedly causes rain to fall. The pearl wards off evil spirits.
