The Tao Zhi Lamp is part of our Ashmolean Collection. Decorated with a peach branch laden with fruit in cobalt blue and red on a white background with flying bats, the piece is inspired by the design on a Qing dynasty vase held by The Ashmolean Muserum. Complete with a hardwood base and carrying a fully lined cream coloured shade.
Peaches are associated with longevity, lingzhi fungus with eternal youth. Bats often carry the meaning of becoming rich, but when in groups can represent longevity, health, wealth, virtue and a peaceful, natural death.
The images display the lamp turned both on and off.
