Celebrate the Chinese New Year or a birthday with this Chinese Zodiac Rat. Representing sociability and sharpness, it is crafted in auspicious golden crystal. Designed in collaboration with artists from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, the piece boasts 677 glittering facets. The curved clear crystal base is inspired by the shape of the Huang Jade fans seen in Chinese art and features the Swarovski logo and the Chinese character for ‘rat’. In the case that all 12 signs would be available, they could even form a circle symbolizing the endless cycle of life and evoking the Jade Bi artefact used in ancient rituals. Chinese Zodiac leaflet included. Decoration object. Not a toy. Not suitable for children under 15.
