Dragon and Phoenix iconography expresses the perfect synergy of the yin and yang principle, that creates the dynamism of a harmonious relationship. The Dragon represents the Emperor and the Phoenix the energy of the Sun that renews and sustains all creative life force and shines through darkness as an everlasting inspiration. Together, they are regarded in East Asian cultures as symbols of power and auspiciousness.

Against a Togidashi Maki-e backdrop of clouds and Paulownia trees, a vibrant Dragon adorned with Gold and Silver powders, Aogai shells and brilliant colored Urushi serenades his partner, the mystical Phoenix in perfect unity.
