At Maison Q, we take great pride in dreaming up prints that are fun, whimsical and bursting with colour. This particular one has an additional meaning. This print is inspired by the Chinese idiom: 卧虎藏龙 (wò hǔ cáng lóng) which translates to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It refers to the hidden talent of an individual and a reminder of how we should not underestimate others.
True to the idiom, we have illustrated the tiger in a crouching motion and the dragon, hidden behind the dense tropical foliage. Can you spot them?
On the reverse is the Joyful Gingko, a simple print that features the beautiful fan-shaped leaf. It is scattered across the print in a carefree manner. The gingko represents longevity and is also a symbol of hope and peace.
