The dragon represents a pioneering and brave leader. In Chinese culture, each Year of the Dragon is assigned one of five elements: metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. The associated element changes every 12 years. In 2012, it is water. The Water Dragon brings additional attributes concerned with the Chinese Five Blessings; harmony, virtue, riches, fulfillment and longevity.
Inspired by the Chinese Year of the Dragon, the Jubilee Edition 2012 Dragon celebrates the 25 year anniversary of the SCS, a global network of over 300'000 members! Floating on a clear crystal base of swirls, the Jubilee Edition 2012 Dragon shines in faceted Satin crystal with breathtaking Light Siam crystal eyes. Designed by Elisabeth Adamer, this superior sculpture stands at 12.4 cm (4 7/8 inches). With its magnetic appeal creating a focal point of beauty and interest, it is an excellent choice for both home and office dcor. Available exclusively for SCS members in this year only.
