Blessing light

There is a word in China: "zu bao ping an”(竹报平安) which means bamboo symbolizes safety. It suggests that Chinese pursue peaceful and stable life and represents “Golden Mean”. It symbolizes best wishes for Chinese. I create the word “zu bao ping’an” (“竹爆平安”)as “bao”(爆) in the word “bao zhu”(it means firecrackers) sounds close to “bao”(报) in the words “zu bao ping an”(竹报平安);and associate the feature and symbolic meaning of bamboo to get the idea that the cracked bamboo canister can bring best wishes to people. Therefore, I combine the idea with the function needs of lights to design the products with blessing meaning.
