Artist's Description

The heron is often featured in Chinese poems together with the marshes and lakes it inhabits.

In a painting it symbolizes a path or way as it sounds the same as 路 lù ‘way; method; path’.

If shown with a lotus then this adds the sentiment of progression as 莲 lián ‘lotus’ sounds the same as 连 lián ‘successive’ giving the phrase: 路莲升 lù lián shēng ‘may you follow a path of continuing promotion’.

The word for heron (lu) sounds like the word for path, or way.

A common charm meaning “May your path be ever harmonious.” shows a heron (path) and a lotus flower (continuous harmony).
