CHINESE NEW YEAR: YEAR OF THE DRAGON January 23, 2012 and ends February 9, 2013 2012 is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Dragon is particularly significant: it is a time when people initiate bold projects, make large investments, and prefer to marry. In Chinese culture the dragon is honoured as a symbol of the imperial family. It stands for strength, energy, setting an example and good luck. The limited-edition Year of the Dragon porcelain items are elaborately designed to include opulent colors with touches of gold – inspired by Chinese fine silks, traditional clothing and delicate ceramics. The dragon depicted on the porcelain articles of the Year of Dragon series is powerfully rendered in blue and turquoise, reflecting his strength and his position as inhabitant of the sky, the seas, the rivers, the fog and the rain, a being possessing the power to be visible or invisible. The positive force of the design is highlighted by the use of a strong red tone for the rim decoration, a colour said to keep all evil at bay. This is combined with orange and yellow, colours that symbolise success and prosperity, while rich gold elements underscore the decorative, ornamental style.
