“The ruler of beasts is the qilin; the ruler of birds is the luan.” This mythical bird from China is said to have red plumage interspersed with feathers of every color, and to show itself when the nation’s ruler acts righteously. Between two lines of flowering water chestnuts that symbolize the flora of the earth, large, brightly colored luan birds soar through the clouds. Woven into fabric of pellucid blue, these motifs are a heartfelt prayer for peace on Earth. A suitable piece to create a tranquil space for coming face-to-face with oneself.
Color: Sky blue
With blue thread woven through white, this fabric expresses the soft colors of sky and water. This was inspired by the limpid realm said to be the habitat of the luan bird, depicted with its red tail feathers spread.
