The gorgeous intricacies of Chinese dragon and phoenix mythology have really caught my attention this past year. Dragon represents benevolent strength and vigilance, true embodiment of positive male (yang) energy. Phoenix is female (yin) energy, a symbol of grace, transformation and rebirth. Together, they dance in a powerful, harmonious intermingling of forces that epitomizes the perfect balance of male and female. Beautiful, isn’t it?
I found these lovely dragon and phoenix coffee cups while searching for a gift over the summer (they even come with matching spoons, shown inside the cups here).
Truth be told, I’d probably find some way to break or injure myself on these things if I were to use them daily at home (I’m a tad on the clumsy side). But I think they’d make an amazing addition to a wedding celebration, given their poignant symbolism. Cups for the bride and groom when it’s cake time!
