This little red Dragon is truly spewing fire! Flying high above your head it seems to be moving fast and unpredictably. Pictured against a red and gold Chinese lantern hanging above an electrical store, this print is reminiscent of old-world charm in Asia.
The juxtaposition of a photographic image and embroidered texture adds to the vibrancy of the artwork.
Louise Hill shared the following background with me:
“The photo of the electrical store was taken in Chinatown (Singapore) and I love the antique gold colours on that beautiful duck egg blue background. The embroidered dragons were photos taken from an old vintage kimono that was given to me by another artist friend of mine who lives in Brighton, UK. I wanted to have a bit of fun with this print so made it look like the dragon just got an electric shock! The little ‘flames” around him signify the electricity :-).”

The Louise Hill Connection:
I have been seeing Louise Hill’s artwork on social media and subsequently met her a few times at various fairs and art events. Louise’s artwork is very detailed, bringing together lots of Asian scenes, symbols and images.
The “Little Chinese Windows” limited edition prints are among Louise’s latest artworks and they are truly like peeks through small windows, focusing on a small detail of a potentially bigger picture.
I fell in love with this “Little Fiery Dragon” and am delighted to be able to feature it in my carefully selected collection of “Feng Shui Art”, alongside some of Louise’s other pieces. They make gorgeous Asian accents for your home and I see Feng Shui symbolism in many of Louise’s creations.
The Feng Shui Connection:
The Dragon is one of the four celestial animals in Feng Shui and is one of the most powerful symbols of yang energy. Being well-loved and highly respected all over Asia, the Dragon is overall an auspicious and protective symbol, often used to activate for power, strength, success, wealth and opportunities while also offering divine protection.
The red Dragon, also known as “Fire Dragon”, in particular makes a perfect remedy for the No 3 Quarrelsome Star that brings arguments, misunderstandings, serious disagreements and quarrels, which could even end up in court. It is a truly nasty star.
In 2020, the No 3 Star is very strong and flies into the North. You therefore need a strong cure, and the Red Dragon is particularly effective this year. The Dragon is an astrological ally of the Rat, who lives in the North sector. Hence the Red Dragon will not just suppress the quarrelsome energy but also convert it to harmonious and friendly interactions instead.
So this Little Fiery Dragon could in fact be your best friend this year, helping you to ensure peace and harmony in your home!
In 2020, the Little Fiery Dragon will be highly effective in the following areas:
- Generally in the NORTH of your home, but not in a bedroom.
- In the NORTH corner of your office.
- Opposite your main door (eg in your entry foyer), if your main door faces NORTH.
- People born in the Year of the Rat.
- Anyone who is embroiled in legal entanglements or suffering from a nasty lawsuit.
