Triple Infinity Dragons
3 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 15000 Francs CFA
The dragon is a central part of Chinese mythology and they represent multiple different kinds of important cultural conceptions. In this piece, three Chinese dragons are formed into a triple infinity that can also be imagined as a series of three figure 8s. The number eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture and there is also an added layer of wonder to do with the use of the number eight. When pronounced out loud, the number eight sounds like the phrase, “to prosper”. In Taoist teachings, the number eight is also a symbol of wholeness and balance. The various levels of meaning that are conveyed by this piece are all linked to the concept of prosperity and good luck. Luck in Chinese culture is very tied to numbers, and the number eight combined with the infinity design makes this a very powerful piece of art.
