 Lu Zhang has created a take on the Chinese Treasure Bowl, made to bring luck to whatever you place in it. Ju Bao Pen, or treasure bowl is traditionally used in feng shui to gather and enhance good fortune.

The bowl features relief sculptures on each side of the four sacred creatures of the Four Great Bodhisattva - a green lion, a unicorn, a white elephant and Diting. These symbols together concentrate lucky energy into one vessel - the Lion Feet Treasure Bowl.


The feet of the bowl are lions feet grasping spheres, referencing an 18th-century practice by European furniture makers of replacing traditional dragons' feet claws with lion’s feet when importing decorative elements from the East to the West.
