What was it that inspired me to paint this bird? Mandarin ducks are the ultimate symbol of love and marriage in South East Asia, especially in China, Japan and South Korea. The notion that Mandarin ducks promote love and marriage goes back many centuries. Pars of ducks are often seen swimming close together. It is told the Mandarin ducks stay faithful to their mate throughout their lifetime. These ducks are told to be very peaceful; they get along without bickering and live in perfect harmony. Their love for each other is so profound that if one of them dies or disappears, the duck left behind will be devastated. Without his/her mate the remaining duck will have no will power to live anymore and death is soon inevitable. A well-known Chinese saying goes like this: “Two Mandarin ducks playing in water”, in other words “a loving couple”. The array of colours that they have and the natural beauty with in them. Stunning and delightful.
