An elegant 22K Gold Necklace flanked by two intricately carved Happy Monks in Red Lacquer. It has been decorated with green round Jades, white freshwater Pearls and Black Agate presenting a nice contrast to the Red Lacquer.
The Chinese spiritual world is shaped by Buddhism and Taoism and the monks of both the creeds are reminders of extra-ordinary individual feats during thousands of years of Chinese history, feats of endless meditations, of long travels, of metaphysical deeds which were miracles to the believers. These historical figures and legends have inspired art, songs, poetry, dances, puppetry, and tales. It often tells stories of human nature, historical or legendary events, love, and the supernatural, or stories explaining natural phenomena. Hence Happy monks are the representation of a rich spiritual heritage and infuse happiness and security.
The Happy Monk has various symbolisms to it, bringing in good luck, contentment and abundance in one's life.
