Description

This medallion was designed in collaboration with Herby Lam, Wenyu Xu, and Clayton Shiu. It contains calligraphic Chinese characters based on a poem written by Chinese poet Wang Bo during the Tang Dynasty (650—676 C.E.).

Translated, the characters read, “This land’s splendor spills from Heaven’s treasure; its remarkable people thrive on earth’s bounty.”

Fun Fact! The medallion is 26 feet wide.
