A very impressive eye-catcher on which a Balinese master craftsman has intricately carved a dragon and Phoenix. The craftsman's family has been carving for generations, as this skill is traditionally passed down from father to son.
This could be seen as a type of scrimshaw. Scrimshaw is the name given to engravings, and carvings are done in bone or ivory.
The Tiger and Dragon are Celestial Animals, their opposing Yin and Yang energies complement one another.
In Chinese mythology, The 'Tao' embodies the duality of the universe and the enlivening chi at work to balance opposing forces often represented by the tiger and dragon. Chinese mythology expresses these two forces of the Tiger and a Dragon, or yin and yang, as perfect complements.
THE STALKING TIGER
In this case, the Tiger represents the yin or female chi, the direction West, the color white, and the element metal. It is an embodiment of purpose and patience (much as a tiger deliberately and patiently stalks its prey). Its power is coiled and hidden deep within but a tiger can spring into action with transformative, even deadly force at will.
THE ENERGETIC DRAGON
Dragon energy is male, bold, extroverted, and sky-centered. The green Dragon's direction is East and its element is Wood. The Dragon is fiery and destructive but its force is tempered by the Tiger energy. So, the yin-yang of these two powerful creatures creates a perfect balance.
Pulling the energies of the Tiger and the Dragon into the yin-yang symbol visualizes the interplay of light and dark energy.
