Gifts of Well Wishes and Gratitude
Five Blessings The Five Blessings collection features five graceful stylised bat motifs. The pronunciation of bat in Chinese is a homophone for ’blessings’, and considered as an auspicious animal. The motif of the five bats refers to wufu or the ‘five blessings’ which include longevity, prosperity, health and virtue. The auspiciousness of the collection is further enhanced by other complementary elements: clouds representing good fortune; the lingzhi motif immortality and the fulfilment of wishes; the peony blossom wealth and honour, whilst the lotus petal border is a pun for harmony. The fu character which means ‘joy’ in Chinese, stylised in a traditional roundel, marks every item.
