These Baoding Balls depict the dragon and phoenix. In Chinese history, the dragon and phoenix are complementary symbols and in the same as light and dark. The dragon is a symbol of the supreme ruler and power while the phoenix is a symbol of virtue and grace. The Chinese saying goes "When the dragon soars and the phoenix dances, the people will enjoy happiness for years, bringing peace and tranquility to all under heaven."
Hand crafted by Chinese cloisonne enameling techniques. No two balls are exactly alike and some colors may vary.
