The hulu shape conforms to the Daoist idea of an all-encompassing and joyous way of being and moving through the world. Zhuangzi wrote, “The spirit comes from the dao”. A rounded robust form, liuli streams that flow upward in dark to light gradient. The embossed surface features peaches - a symbol of fertility and future generations, lychee - a symbol of a sweet life and pomegranate - a symbol of togetherness. The hulu, like an intoxicating carafe of liuli wine, reflects the play between light and shadow. Shou, the character for longevity, is hand-carved and repeated across the hulu. Each shou symbolizes LIULI's reverence for humanistic philosophy. The shou symbol is uniquely Chinese and represents blessings and sincerity. Celebrations are often punctuated by a toast. Within each sip eliciting a rich and profound emotion.
