Look closely at this intricately carved jade figure to discern the dragonfly balance on a vine-covered branch. In eastern cultures, the dragonfly symbolizes a number of noble ideals. In Japan, the dragonfly is a seasonal symbol, representing summer and autumn, and is also symbolic of the courage and strength associated with the warrior class. It is also a symbol of happiness, a symbol shared by the Chinese, who also consider the dragonfly a symbol of good luck, harmony and prosperity. To find the dragonfly token on such a beautifully carved item, especially one crafted of luxurious jade, is truly auspicious.
