Drawn with a fine line and fresh, sketched quality, this folk hanging unites two scenes of lucky hoho lotus boys circumscribed in frames punctuated with fruits such as pomegranate, symbolic of prosperity and good fortune. On top, the two explore the natural wonders of the world around them, alive with fluttering butterflies traditionally meaning young love. Below, the pair frolics in a pond among lotus blossoms and goldfish thought to bring an abundance of wealth and harmony. Punctuated by brass medallions, strips of red-lacquered wood give structure to the fabric panels that roll like a traditional scroll. Originally, this painting was likely used in front of a door to decoratively block breezes.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
