This year's theme revolves around the Year of the Dragon, emphasizing the concept of "POWER." My inspiration struck upon encountering the exquisite Hong Kong Porcelain during a recent visit, marking my return after a five-year absence. For me, power manifests in the preservation of the beloved culture. This piece serves as a deliberate effort to draw attention to the intricate symbolism: dragons, peony and bats — symbolizing power, luck, and fortune.
