Growth, prosperity, longevity, virtue

An arabesque pattern representing growth and prosperity. The beautiful curving lines of the arabesque style, with undulating, swirling, intertwining, and interlacing vines and ivy, developed into a variety of patterned forms. This pattern is typically Japanese in its use of pines to represent longevity, bamboo for prosperity, and plum for virtue.
