999 PURE GOLD BOWL OF ABUNDANCE PAIRED WITH FRANK ZHEN’S ART
“To convey the endless blessings and auspiciousness, I use the Singaporean icon, the Merlion, in a red Chinese papercut design in my paintings.” – Frank Zhen
SK Jewellery presents a beautiful 999 Pure Gold Ruyi (如意), as part of its Treasures Collection. A ceremonial sceptre that represented power and authority in ancient China, the Ruyi is widely embraced in modern times as an auspicious symbol.
SK Jewellery adds another layer of well-meaning to the Ruyi by crafting it in 999 Pure Gold, a well-known symbol of success and good fortune. Through the use of advance technology, the sceptre boasts of intricate and elegant carvings, and on it are the Chinese characters that represents bliss, success, longevity, joy and prosperity (福,禄,寿,喜,财). As the term “ruyi” may be interpreted as “as you wish” or “in accordance with your desires” in Mandarin, it also represents good wishes. As such, the gift of SK Jewellery’s 999 Pure Gold Ruyi for friends, relatives and business associates will be exceptionally meaningful and represents the most sincere of well-wishes from the giver.
About Frank Zhen
“The Treasures collection represents the convergence of riches and abundance to the individual or household. To convey the endless blessings and auspiciousness, I use the Singaporean icon, the Merlion, in a red Chinese papercut design in my paintings. Both lion (strength, power and grandeur) and fish (abundance, fertility and affluence) are revered in all cultures. I also use several auspicious Chinese symbols in my paintings to generate a sense of Abundance, happiness and good luck.”
Art has been a passion for Frank Zhen since his youth, who would as a child spend hours drawing on paper. In the past few years, he has experienced an intense urge to paint to express his feelings, and has undertaken a number of short courses in painting from 2006 to 2011. Frank’s shows have been covered by Channel NewsAsia and the Straits Times, and have met with commercial success.
