Tree of Life
The Tree of Life -- constantly dividing, leafing out, and blooming -- has been a symbol of growth and enrichment in life since ancient time.
The rabbit has long been the symbol of spring, one of Miranda’s classic patterns representing prosperity, optimism, immortality and fertility. The rabbit is thought of as cunning and able to escape bad luck.
The peony, with its beautiful cup shape and intoxicating scent, has long been coveted throughout gardening history. It is considered a symbol of beauty itself and brings promise to love, marriage and fertility.
Fish have a strong symbolic history in both eastern and western cultures. They represent good fortune, prosperity, and abundance.
