Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardians: A Legacy of Wisdom and Prosperity

Estimated Reading Time: 4 mins

The creation of the all-new Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardians is a celebration and tribute to resilience, prosperity and strategic wisdom. The collection, a reimagination of a stalwart Imperial Harvest classic, is harmoniously aligned with the transformative energies of Period 9 while withholding our strong Imperial Feng Shui heritage.

In the realm of Imperial Feng Shui, Period 9 of the Feng Shui cycle will occur from 2024 to 2043. This new era in Feng Shui is ruled by the Right Assistant Star (右弼星) within the Big Dipper constellation (北斗七星). Symbolised by the Li Trigram (离卦) and aligning with the element of Fire, Period 9 ushers in an era of transformation, innovation and progress.

Sandalwood: A Source of Wisdom and Insight

Within the Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardians collection, sandalwood emerges as a wellspring of wisdom and insight. This exceptional collection serves not only as a testament to the timeless allure of Imperial Feng Shui but also as a bridge connecting the depth of Chinese history and heritage with boundless possibilities for the future.

In a harmonious tribute to the visionary spirit of Emperor Kangxi, Imperial Harvest masterfully weaves together his illustrious accomplishments with the enduring wisdom of Imperial Feng Shui, resulting in a seamless tapestry that resonates with the unmatched cultural legacy of the Qing dynasty.

Today, the Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardians transcend mere craftsmanship, becoming living embodiments of our unwavering commitment to quality and design excellence.

Superlative Quality of Imperial Harvest Sandalwood

Each masterpiece within the Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardians collection is crafted from sandalwood-producing trees no less than 80 years old — a testament to the intrinsic quality of Imperial Harvest-grade sandalwood. After meticulous harvesting, the raw sandalwood is transported to Imperial Harvest’s dedicated workshop facilities. Then, it is consecrated with time-honoured Imperial Feng Shui rites to evoke its potent indirect wealth-enhancing capabilities. Nestled within the Imperial Harvest workshop in designated indirect wealth sectors, the harvested sandalwood undergoes a natural and organic ageing process, absorbing prosperous indirect wealth energies from its unique surroundings.

Harvested from sandalwood-producing trees, Imperial Harvest-grade sandalwood is a testament to luxury and nature’s artistry. With a gentle and soothing fragrance, it undergoes an ageing process of no less than 30 years. The sandalwood develops distinctive reddish-brown hues from this process, with subtle black flecks enhancing the wood grains — a sublime fusion of luxury and natural beauty.

Imperial Harvest’s team of master artisans breathe life into each Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardian. With unparalleled multi-generational expertise, these individuals shape, etch, and carve intricate details by hand. This artisanal craftsmanship ensures the full release of the exceptional fragrance and resin inherent in each Imperial Harvest Sandalwood Zodiac Guardian treasure — a manifestation of indirect wealth, wisdom, and strategic insight that truly befits the Imperial Harvest legacy.
