Butterfly Pairs & Ruyi Ginger Jar Table Lamp Base

Butterfly Pairs & Ruyi Ginger Jar Table Lamp Base

Regular price HK$2,200

The butterfly is a symbol of happiness as well as matrimonial joy. Butterflies together represent longevity, because the Chinese name for butterfly sounds like the word, ‘repeat’ – meaning a long life.

Ruyi, or Fungus, are identifiable by a 3 curved design. They're often mistaken for bats or clouds. This common border pattern is a homophone for the Chinese expression 'As you wish' or 'To follow one's heart's desire'.
