A rare and unique Antique Chinese Architectural Element of a Double-Headed Elephant dating to 1920 in elm from the Henan Province that was more than likely part of a decoration design for a roof.

ELEPHANT

The elephant is a symbol for happiness longevity and good fortune as well as strength and astuteness.

BATS

According to Chinese belief bats represent good luck as the word for bat sounds very similar to "Fu" the word for good fortune or blessing. Two bats seen together doubles the good luck while the representation of five bats together symbolizes the Five Blessings of life: wealth health virtue a long life and a natural death.



SCROLLING CLOUDS

The repetitive scrolling cloud motif is probably the most common carved decorative accent in Antique Chinese Furniture. This pretty carved flourish often found on aprons and spandrels is meant to convey good fortune.

DRAGON & PHOENIX

A powerful combination in Chinese symbolism the dragon and phoenix represent Yin and Yang together -- a natural and perfect balance. This dynamic union symbolizes prosperity success love friendship and enlightenment. The Dragon and Phoenix were often matched during wedding festivities as their combination suggests the married pair will enjoy a lifetime of wealth and happiness.
