    龍是中華民族的象徵,代表神武、力量、卓越、掌財等等。九與「久」諧音,是最大的數字,有長久、前途無量等寓意。另一說九龍即為九州,寓意皇權和天下,因此九龍象徵尊貴之極。
 
    群龍圍繞於主龍之旁,眾星拱月之態使得本已巨碩的主龍更顯氣派,代表無比至上權勢,龍身雄曲,龍鱗櫛比,嘴上吐一寶珠,象徵財富。臺座方正整齊,刻有龍首平相,威風凜凜。本作氣勢磅礡,是賞龍、愛龍人士之夢幻逸品。
 
    The dragon is a traditional symbol of the Chinese people. It represents the qualities of courage, strength, excellence, and fortune. The number "nine," the highest numeral, is a homonym for "eternity" in Chinese, and has the connotation of a great period of time. Therefore, the number nine implies an unlimited future. The term "nine dragons" can also be used to describe the "nine states," which describes sovereign rule over the whole country. It is then easy to understand that the term "nine dragons" signifies the highest possible honor and respect.
 
    In this piece, the impressive main dragon stands out from a group of minor dragons, all in high-relief, resembling the sight of stars twinkling around the bright moon. The dragon in focus assumes the role of supreme authority. The dragon’s body coils around the stone base, and its scales are joined together in an orderly fashion. The dragon pearl floats downward in the air to symbolize a precious treasure descending directly from heaven. The stone base is cut in a perfect square. The dragon's head is mounted vertically atop the base with glaring eyes staring straight forward depicting the domineering nature of the beast. This is a work long desired by many dragon lovers and enthusiastic art collectors.
