Elixir of Life

Elixir of Life

„Spring pictures“ do not only belong to old Chinese art but are also a part of China’s cultural inheritance.

They represent the search for satisfaction and self-fulfilment, for beauty in all its variations.

Yin and Yang flow into each other, a very aesthetic joy, searching harmony in the interplay of nature and art.

In “Tao-Te-Ching”, propably the most important book of taoism, it reads:

The spirit of the valley never dies;

it is named the mysteriously feminine.

The gate of the mysteriously feminine

is called the roots of the sky and the earth.

Eternally wresting itself free and endlessly still;

use it; it will never wear out.

Eroticism on ceramic and porcelain has always fascinated me. So it is no surprise that I got the idea of painting „spring pictures“ on bonsai pots and I must say it was a sensual spring pleasure.

I think the pictures need no comment because they are a matter of universal aesthetics. 


The art of the beauty of life. A picture to dream...
