Swallows and Oriental Waves Original Artwork by Deborah Mckellar of Talking Textiles
This Original Singapore Artwork ‘Swallows and Oriental Waves’ by Deborah Mckellar of Talking Textiles takes inspiration from the message behind the motifs seen in blue-and-white porcelain.
In Chinese culture, swallows bring happiness and good fortune; a blessing to the new year.
Cherry blossoms and magpies adorn the Chinese paper cut-out motif. The flowers are a symbolic flower of the season, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. While the magpies are a token of joy, love, and lasting fortune.
Finally, the Chinese silk cut-out depicts Dragons in red, and gold; colours that signify positive blessings of luck and prosperity.
If you love art and want to take a little piece of Singapore wherever you go, this is the perfect Singapore souvenir to enhance your design scheme.
