The plum blossom is one of classic Chinese literature’s “Four Gentlemen”—each of which represents a season of the year. This plum blossom radiates like a lone star against the stark backdrop of a frigid and unforgiving winter, testifying to its extraordinary nature of resilience and blossoming grandly despite the cold. The pebbled surface of the art piece is akin to snow melting into ice, against which the five-pedal blossom blooms. The pedals themselves represents fortunes: Longevity, prosperity, health, virtue, and benevolence.
Burst of Spring
Unsullied, impervious to frost, snow or cold.
An unexpected burst of red heralds spring upon a prolific easterly wind.
