Rich in ancient oriental symbolism, this striking new design depicts a tiger and a dragon chasing a flaming pearl in an intricate representation of the yin-yang symbol.
Traditional Representation of Yin-Yang
In feng shui the tiger represents ‘yin’ energy and the dragon ‘yang’. Both creatures, which have for centuries embodied power and good fortune, are therefore considered a perfect match in the ancient Chinese philosophical account of natural balance. The tiger and dragon are frequently depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl, a metaphor for wisdom and enlightenment.
