This design takes inspiration from the Chinese legend saying that the immortals flew to their palaces in heaven by riding on a mythical bird called "luan." Similar to the phoenix, a sighting of the luan bird indicates an omen of peace.

Born for love, the luan bird spends its entire life searching for its other half. It has the most beautiful voice according to classic Chinese literature. Shan Hai Jing describes it as inhabiting paradisiacal areas where it sings spontaneously to the phoenix's dance. Shuowen Jiezi describes it sing in the five standard pitches and appear when hymns of praise are sung to rulers. Wakan Sansai Zue further states that due to its viscosity, the luan bird's blood can be used as an adhesive for attaching strings to musical instruments.

Grace your reading experience with this lithe design, in which a perfect marriage of tradition and creativity resides. A bearer of heartfelt wishes, it makes an ideal all-occasion gift for spreading love and kindness.
