This still life is based on a Portuguese decorative cabinet featuring blue and white ceramic vessels. A quiet painting, Sarah has carefully painted the dragon on the left urn. Dragons in Chinese culture symbolize great power, good luck and strength — quite different from the evil, dangerous, fire-breathing dragons of Western legend.

Painted in oil on canvas, this painting has been finished with a transparent gloss varnish to protect it from dust and UV light. It is mounted on acid-free foam core and arrives ready to hang, set into a custom frame with an antique gold finish.
