THE STORY
At the heart of Chinese mythology are four spiritual creatures (in Chinese - Sì Shòu, in Japanese - Shishin). Two of the most powerful of the four celestial animals are the dragon and phoenix.

The dragon and phoenix are the perfect couple in Feng Shui. Dragon is "yang" while Phoenix is "yin", and they complement each other in creating yin-yang balance to harvest successful matrimonial bliss. This celestial couple is the symbol of everlasting love and they being together is the ultimate symbol of marital happiness. It symbolizes that the man and spouse will stay together through thick and thin, and that love and passion will last till the end. They ensure that a newlywed couple will be blessed with both patriach and matriach luck, outstanding achievement in life and great fortune and prosperity with many filial offsprings.

THE DIMENSIONS
The tusk is 86cm long

THE SHIPPING
- The swordfish tusk will be packaged carefully and sent registered with a Track & Trace code via DHL Parcel.

If not please contact me through catawiki messages and I will try and resolve this issue. If you have received the parcel, would you be kind enough to remove the negative feedback. Thanks you very much and I hope if there is still a problem we will be able to resolve the situation.
