The Clearance Items

The various symbols found on Asian works of art have quite a long history. Taoism, and Buddhism each brought with them a complete set of beliefs, legends, and superstitions. To even attempt a complete listing would be a lifetime project. What we have done instead was to go through our inventory of product and research the meaning of each, compile the information we found, and present it here. We are continually adding to this section as we acquire new designs and find there meaning.
