This gorgeous red lacquered chest is so named for the Chinese Harmony God featured on its front. "He He", the deity of harmony is depicted here riding on mythical animal Qi Lin holding lotus flowers. Such an image symbolizes peace and harmony. Ink paintings of peonies symbolize prosperity. A 2" thick single slab board of solid wood makes the top, a practice that is consistent with the traditional way furniture were made in Northern China. This piece is a perfect example of balancing function with beauty while its amazing artistry brings the ancient exotica to life and make it timeless.
Solid wood. Tenons and mortises.
