Four gentlemen of flowers with a frame of vases. The ingots hanging at the top represent good wishes for success.
1) Plum flowers represent five blessings; happiness, wisdom, longevity, well-being, and tranquillity.
2) Orchids represent divine purity and are the scent of royalty.
3) Bamboo represents resilience, longevity, happiness, spiritual truth, and generous spirits.
4) Chrysanthemums represent a high moral character and a strong will.

Dongyang woodcarving was made during the Tang dynasty (618-907). By the time of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), their technology was already well developed. Camphor wood is used for Dongyang woodcarvings.
