Circle with deer sculpture
We often see stainless steel deer sculptures in real life, so why are stainless steel deer sculptures so popular?
The deer represents the harmony of nature and the fearlessness of the pure land of the gods, as well as the Buddha. Like the lonely rhino, the deer symbolizes extinction because it never spends consecutive nights in the same place. A stag can also be painted as a one-horned deer. In mainland China, the stainless steel sculpture deer symbolizes longevity and is the only animal that can determine the location of Ganoderma lucidum, so it is highly respected. It is believed that the antler tips of the stainless steel sculpture deer contain the essence of Ganoderma lucidum. It is said that the elixir made of deer antler can prolong life, strengthen the body and make people energetic. In Tibetan art, stainless steel deer sculptures often appear in pairs of males and females, representing harmony, happiness and loyalty.
As a symbol of beauty, deer has an indissoluble bond with art. Deer has been found in murals, paintings and sculptures in all dynasties. Such as the picture of a knight shooting a deer in the Han Dynasty, and the relief of a reclining deer on the Buddha seat. The rock paintings of the Shang Dynasty were discovered in the Baicha River of Inner Mongolia, among which the deer are the most numerous, with a variety of expressions and a strong atmosphere of life. In the modern street square and courtyard area stands a group of deer, single deer, mother and child deer, young deer, husband and wife deer. Some trademarks, pavilions, and shops also use deer, which is a psychological reflection of people’s longing for beauty and prosperity. So the deer has become a symbol of beauty.
