This seal is both handsome and elegant with its simplicity of rich color and carving. The front of the stone, which is basically ivory, is a soft scumble of ivory and umber. The entire upper half of the piece features a delicately carved lotus plant. The soft ivory color dominates the back of the stone, with the faintest essence of ochre and umber, and a pewter colored highlight that accents the lotus' stems.
The lotus is a symbol of purity and holiness and is sacred in China. A lotus bloom and bud shown together signify a complete union.
