This porcelain apple inspired by Chinese nature features a peaceful bird below striking bright red botanicals. Landscape painting is one of the highest forms of Chinese art and in the home contributes to the feng shui of the environment, because it reinforces the balance and harmony found in nature. 

Taikkun Li chose the shape of an apple because an apple, pronounced "ping guo" in Chinese, is a symbol of luck and prosperity. It is Taikkun's hope that all who receive one of his porcelain apples will experience peace, balance, and positive energy in their home each day, whether they are admiring the apple on a shelf or holding it in their hands and enjoying the texture and shape.

Taikkun Li, whose work was recently selected to represent the contemporary evolution of Chinese ceramics at the University of New Mexico Museum, is a well-respected multimedia artist. Created by the artist for Pagoda Red, this series of hand-painted porcelain apples was fired at the traditional Chinese imperial kilns in Jingdezhen. In traditional Chinese culture, apples are symbols of peace, because the Mandarin words for both sound similar. This apple is painted with a landscape scene, generally believed to communicate the natural balance and harmony of the universe. Each apple is signed by the artist.
