Having a loving family is a blessing, not a given. This artwork presents the moment of family: a mama pig and nine piglets encircle each other in play and with joy. The number “nine” (pronounce in “jiu” in Mandarin) means longevity and everlasting love. With Hundred Children (百子圖), a popular painting theme in Chinese culture, in mind, this artwork crafts an alternative version of the same wish for fertility and abundance. Layered with peony blooms, family love flourishes for years to come. This design is a centerpiece in living room, entryway, or wherever friends and families are gather.
Together, overflowing with happiness. This fortune and joy we know has been passed down through generations.
