Exclusive

Exclusive to the British Museum, a print of a bird picking lotus seeds from a flower, by Ding Liangxian.

The pretty image was produced c.1735-1750, and an original copy is now housed in the British Museum. Although the image seems unassuming at face value, it can also be read as a well-wishing pun, since the word for ‘lotus’, lian, is also the word for ‘successive’, and the word for ‘seeds’, zi, is also the word for ‘sons’, the image can read as a blessing for a succession of sons.

An extraordinary gift for the home.
