This boxwood pendant is carved with a different design on each side. Both are of dragons with a bat. The carving is raised and done in great detail. The pendant can be worn with either side facing forward. It measures 2 1/2” long by 1 3/4” wide and is light weight. I have topped it with a black only dragon lying on its side. The entire pendant drops 3 1/2” from a black natural leather cord that is adjustable from 16” to 32” using slipknots which means I can be worn a variety of lengths.

The dragon is the imperial emblem of the Emperors in China, especially from the from the Han period where their coat of arms shows two dragons fighting for the fiery pearl. The dragon is a supernatural creature and is the symbol of power, strength, wisdom and goodness. It represents the utmost in accomplishment: good luck and a successful life. It is also believed to be the guardian of hidden treasures. It represents the spirit of growth and change.

The bat is symbolic of happiness, good fortune, prosperity and longevity. When something is portrayed upside down it means it has arrived, so the common portrayal of an upside-down bat is symbolic of good fortune that has arrived. It is one of the best symbols of good luck. Two bats together means double good fortune.

The Chinese have been carving boxwood figures for about 900 years. Boxwood is from the Chinese boxwood evergreen shrub which is native to Southeast Asia. Because it is fine grained and high density it can be carved in great detail yet it is light weight. The Chinese have been carving boxwood figures for about 900 years. It is also used to carve musical instruments. Romans used to place a twig of boxwood in their tombs.
