SHE U,Carolynn。許 佳琳。:chopstick ring。


A pair of chopsticks is considered as a symbol of good fortune in Chinese culture. It is not only because a set of two (things that are used together or regarded as a unit) is regarded as lucky (especially for married couples as 'a pair' ), but also the pronunciation of chopsticks in Chinese language is similar to 'welcoming the babies soon'.



Bamboo is another vital element, which appears frequently with rice, in Carolynn's art works. In scientific classification, bamboo and rice have close relationship to each other as they are in the same family, as well as chopsticks to rice in Chinese culture. So I used a pair of chopsticks and a rice pearl for the piece, as they are representing parents and the child(ren).
