Add a unique explosion of color to your annual holiday decorations. This cream colored glass ball has been painted with an ancient Chinese art style called eglomise. A small hook shaped brush reaches into the glass through the opening in the top of the ornament and the design is painted onto the inside of the bauble. Since the paint is applied to the inside of the glass, it will last longer and won't chip away, extending the life of your decoration.
Two multicolored mandarin ducks swim in a pond that is full of plant life and beauty. In both Japan and China, two Mandarin ducks swimming side by side symbolize a union between two people. This motif is especially great to give to soon-to-be married couples, newlyweds or people who have been married for years. The New Year represents a fresh start and the union between these two can be seen given to those looking to continue in their harmony and those looking to improve upon their commitments in 2008.
Pink and white lotus flowers line the bottom of the sphere and are representative of rebirth and resurrection, keeping with the tradition of new beginnings that the New Year represents. The tall grass and other plants add to the serene appeal of this decoration. A gold toned metal cap and red cord are attached to the top to provide easy hanging.
