The Open Talon
The Ball and Claw Motif


Originating in China, The Ball and Claw Motif illustrates

the balance between the opposing forces of good and evil.

Represented by a dragon's claw clutching a pearl - the

pearl being a perfect sphere - signifies purity, truth and wisdom,

is guarded by the dragon from the forces of

evil.
