Ethereal Clouds | 灵云
In traditional Chinese mythology, the structure of the Imperial Palace here on Earth is replicated in the heavens. The Jade Emperor presides over the Heavenly Palace, with numerous deities each responsible for a part of our world. The deities travel through the skies on clouds, and over time, clouds have come to symbolize luck and auspiciousness.
Clouds have been the subject of many artists over time, and this incense burner is created in the curvaceous, multi-layered form often seen in traditional stylizations.
Best used with incense sticks 5” or shorter (full length 8.25” incense sticks can be cut in half). Hole size approx. 1/16, will not accommodate incense sticks thicker than this. Suitable for most incense sticks without bamboo core (most Chinese and Japanese incense sticks are of the appropriate thickness and style).
