925 silver reliquary depicting the taotié dragon.
Taoties, which scholars of the Ming dynasty listing the iconographic motifs of architecture and the visual arts are among the 9 sons of the Dragon (龍九), "love to drink and eat". The two characters that make up the word 饕餮 taotie also contain the component食 which means "eat," "food," "animal feed" and it is precisely on vases intended for food offerings that their stylized image is most often found.
The design usually consists of a zoomorphic mask, described as frontal, bilateral symmetry, with a pair of raised eyes and generally without area of the lower jaw. Some claim that the design can be attributed to jade pieces found in Neolithic sites such as the Liangzhu culture (3310-2250 BC).
In ancient Chinese mythology as "classic of mountains and seas," taotie (饕餮) is one of the "four dark creatures of the world," as are Hundun (混沌), Qiongqi (窮奇) and Taowu (梼杌). On the other side, there are four holy creatures in Chinese mythology called Azure Dragon, Vermilion Bird, White Tiger and Black Turtle. The four are also sometimes friends and juxtapose with the four benevolent animals that are Qilin (麒麟), Dragon (龍), Turtle (龜) and Fenghuang (鳳凰).
Vajra, in Tibetan dorje. It is probably the most important symbol of Tibetan Buddhism. The term means "diamond" and refers to the indestructible nature of the mind itself, awakening, which is both imperishable and indivisible. The small scepter originally appears to be the diamond lightning of the god Indra, a mark of royalty and power.
(1) the top five points represent the five wisdoms, five facets of the diamond that is the awakened mind:
mirror-like wisdom, which means that the awake mind, like a perfectly polished mirror, clearly reflects all things, has the ability to know everything, without any confusion.
the wisdom of equality, which recognizes that all the phenomena of samsara (ordinary world) and nirvana (pure fields or paradise of Buddhas) are of an equal nature in that they are of a unique essence: emptiness
the wisdom of distinction, which denotes that the awakened mind perceives not only the emptiness of all phenomena (which is the wisdom of equality) but also, in a simultaneous, unre-confusiond nature, all phenomena as they manifest themselves;
the fulfilling wisdom, which allows the Buddhas to create pure fields and emanations working for the good of beings;
the wisdom of universal space, which indicates that all phenomenes, beyond any concept and duality, remain in pure knowledge of the mind.
(2) At the same time as the five wisdoms, these five upper points symbolize the Five Winners or five main Male Buddhas on a mystical level. The five lower points symbolize the Five Female Buddhas.
(3) The mouths of makara (sea monster) whose tips emerge denote the liberation of the cycle of existences.
(4) The eight upper petals represent the eight male bodhisattvas, i.m. eight large bodhisattvas remaining in celestial domains.
(5) The eight lower petals are the eight female bodhisattvas.
6. The round part in the middle refers to emptiness.
