Beautifully detailed and masterfully painted, this painting dating from the turn of the 20th century centers its expressive composition upon a rondel of Chinese symbols. Representing prosperity, a pair of exuberant children cavorts in a fantastical landscape. One rides a sensitively portrayed qilin, a mythological lion-like dragon who represents joy and benevolence, the other child waves a banner inscribed with the message “Good luck for your future.” Painted on muslin, the work is presented in a stunning green-tinted Elmwood frame.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
