OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAW30xL160mm, China

A delicate stem of porcelain flower.

Continuing from yesterday’s theme, today we have another water plant, the daffodil, (shui xian) 水仙 which literally means the saint of the water.  Behind the name is a love story; in the beginning of Chinese history the mythical Emperor Yao has 2 daughters, Princess E Huang and Nu Ying, they were both married to Emperor Shun.  The three of them were much in love, when Emperor Shun passed away, the two sisters jumped into a river and committee suicide so the three could be together.  The gods were moved by their love and made them into the saints of the water flower.

Amongst the unique pottery, you will also find Mountain Folkcraft’s collection at the Cobo Ceramic Workshop X’mas Sale.
