The Collection: Dancing Blooms, Flying Fish, Spring Lights Converge
The parrot tulip, sometimes known as “foreign lotus,” is originated from Europe and Central Asia. Crafted into a tall, upright treasure vase with the vivid contrast of glimmering gold leaf, the tulip’s true beauty is revealed here. A closer look reveals a bevy of goldfish gathered over the mouth of the bao ping (or treasure vase) their tails blossoming grandly into the many rich colors of the parrot tulip. After months of trial and error, LIULI artists are capable of casting such design, achieving excellent balance, in tandem with special mouth-blowing techniques. Symbolizing royalty, transcendence and wealth, “in Praise of the Tulip” is a one-of-a-kind art piece with roots in traditionalism and a contemporary design.
