Design Concept: 

The Qilin, a traditional symbol of extraordinary talent, represents the element earth and the central position. The male is called qi, and the female lin; both are a composite of various creatures, including the deer, horse, cow, and fish. Since Qilin only appear in an age which is peaceful and prosperous, their appearance is regarded as a particularly auspicious omen. The Qilin is noted for its benevolence and gentle disposition. Like the earth, it is the root of all life. It selflessly bears all, looking after all earth’s creatures with benevolence. In this dynamic piece of glass sculpture the Qilin is depicted riding upon swirling auspicious clouds, highlighting its boundless divine power.

Associated with the four quadrants of the vault of heaven are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise of the North; in the center is the Qilin (unicorn). Each region corresponds to one of the five elements: metal (west), wood (east), water (north), fire (south), and earth (center). Moving across the night sky, the stars connect all life to the five elements. When the universe and elements are aligned, harmony ensues.

麒麟出中方,屬性是土, 麒麟,是聖獸王,融合了龍、牛、、鹿、羊、馬、虎的特徵,體現了 “集美”思想,用以象徵才能傑出的人,以及因麒麟是在太平盛世才會示現的靈獸,也寓意一個和平和善的世界。如同土,是孕育萬物的根本, 無私的承容一切,仁澤人間萬物。 作品的塑造動感十足,無限神力的神獸足踏祥雲,風雲千里。

五相,東青龍、西白虎、南朱雀、北玄武、中麒麟,安定人心,信心的鎮守與護佑。古老的東方智慧,指引人們前往美好和諧的未來。

The Collection: Directional Clarity

Benevolence of the Qilin

Sauntering at the brink of heaven,
delivering flowers in its wake,
the Qilin contains within benevolence for all the world's creatures.
With an enlightened soul and impenetrable body,
it is an eternal protector,
a central force of good.
