  • Catalogue Essay

    Jade carvings by Chinese artisans have long been celebrated as a highly specialized artform. Auspicious symbols representing luck, prosperity, longevity and virtue have been incorporated into jadeite carving designs since antiquity. The carving incorporates both squirrels and grapes. Squirrels, called ‘songshu’ (松鼠) in Mandarin Chinese, shares the syllable tone with pine (松樹), a symbol of longevity. Whilst grapes usually contain seeds ‘zi’ (籽) signifying strong descendants. A succulent bunch of grapes also signifies an abundance of wealth, with good things to come and an improvement to one’s fortune. A historical figure who was renowned for her love of jadeite was Empress Dowager Cixi.

    中國工藝玉雕一直以匠心獨具的技藝備受讚譽。自古以來,翡翠雕刻的設計中圖必有意,常蘊意好運、繁榮、長壽與美德。翡翠刻有松鼠與葡萄,活靈畢現,呼應成趣。松鼠,諧音「松樹」,寓意長壽。葡萄多籽,諧音「子」,象徵多子多孫。另有葡萄成串為「多」,碩果累累,帶給人們豐收富貴的吉祥祈願,預示著萬代綿長,祥和福氣的美好生活。古今中外鐘情收藏及佩戴翡翠的歷史名人多不胜數,慈禧太后便是當中的佼佼者。
