DRAGON

Dragons are a powerful symbol in Chinese mythology and symbolize power authority male vigor and fertility. They represent the "yang" force in the "yin-yang" dynamic.



PEACH

In Chinese symbolism the peach represents longevity. There is a myth that the Eight Immortals gather in the Kun Lun mountains to eat the fruit of a peach tree which blooms once every 3000 years in order to preserve their immortality.

LOTUS

In Buddhist symbolism the lotus flower represents purity and perfection as the lotus plant grows in mud and muck yet the beautiful bloom arises untainted. The lotus sometimes represents the Buddha himself and can also symbolize love and harmony between a married couple. The lotus also represents the summer as it blooms during this hot season.
