I picked up this figurine at the local charity second hand shop with the idea that it would make an interesting addition to a floral painting. This is a figurine of a Chinese man (a traditional Chinese Emperor) in yellow and red robe and hat. Red is traditionally significant and symbolic of good luck, joy, and happiness in Chinese culture so I added vermillion red roses to go with the red on the figure. And now I have donated the figurine back so someone else can enjoy it as a decorating accent.
