Dogs are known for being man’s best friend as they are intelligent and fiercely loyal. This year, the KDF Chinese Community Committee is excited to present the “Dog of Fortune” – a German shepherd sculpture – as KDF’s charity icon for the year.
The “Dog of Fortune” seeks inspiration from the acclaimed Chinese art form of Liuli and features a German shepherd with a dignified posture and resolute stare, faithfully guarding the riches of its master which it rests upon. The calabash (or ‘Hu Lu’) beside the canine symbolises happiness and status and prosperity in one’s career and household.
A vivid representation with thoughtful detailing, accentuated with fluid and translucent shades of green and yellow, the icon measures a total height of 23cm and sits on a wooden base measuring 22cm by 14cm.
Temples, clans and lunar 7th month dinner organisers can support us by allowing KDF to auction our charity icon at your celebratory occasions and dinners to raise funds for our needy kidney patients. You may also support us by making an outright donation.
Extend hope to low-income dialysis patients by adopting a “Dog of Fortune” today.
Donations of $888 and above will be entitled to one charity icon.
All donations are entitled to 2.5 times income tax deduction. Click here to make a donation.
狗被认为是通人性的动物，它对人类特别忠诚，象征着忠贞不渝。KDF 华社筹款委员会特别推出的2018年慈善福物《旺狗纳福》，即是以德国狼犬为主体造型，采用仿琉璃工艺塑造而成。 狼犬身姿挺拔、双目炯炯有神，它端坐在用铜钱堆栈而成的基座上，为主人忠诚地看守着财富；身旁的葫芦则代表着福禄双全、家业荣昌。福物雕刻惟妙惟肖，即突显狼犬的高大威猛，又不失工匠的精巧细致。
