With its classic, straight-handled design and detailed head adorned with motifs of bats, clouds and thunder, and a traditional taotie pattern used to honor ancestors, the “Ruyi of Happiness and Longevity” signifies good fortune, wealth, longevity and a joyful life. The round base elevating the ruyi resembles a copper door knocker, symbolizing the home and feng shui protection. The geometrical rigor of the design on this ruyi’s handle complements the organic curves of its head, whose complicated images unite to form a dense visual contrast. The “Ruyi of Happiness and Longevity” is the perfect gift for elder relatives, according them the respect and honor they are due.
Ruyi of Happiness and Longevity
As the heavens mature,
this land is revitalized.
Fortune as vast as the seas,
longevity as broad as the mountains.
