Collection: Longing for a Pure Existence (Year of the Dog)
In this artwork from the zodiac Year of the Dog collection “Longing for a Pure Existence,” the subject is a dog perched at the pinnacle of a long and steep climb. Choosing instead to depict the art piece’s central dog figure at the peak rather than in the midst of an arduous struggle, the piece represents all the fruits of one’s labor. It throws its head back in a gesticulation of victory and crowning achievements. In contrast, the piece is sculpted into the shape of a bamboo shoot, on one end decorated in the low relief of peony designs and floral patterns. The bamboo symbolically represents that whatever achievements one may have conquered, they continue to grow and evolve, bringing in more luck and fortune with each passing day. The dog is shown smiling and giving a thumb-up. In “The Pinnacle of Luck,” the values of tenacity and excellence are openly expressed. But as with all other pieces in the zodiac collection, the piece’s amber zenith—a dog—invokes the sentiment that behind all of the greatest fortunes in life are the strength of loyalty, compassion, and pure companionship.
