This print shows a pair of mandarin ducks, floating on the water. Reed, heavy with snow is dipping into the water in the background.

Both, the colouring and symbolism of this print are soft and romantic. Mandarin ducks are said to mate for life and if pulled apart, a pair of them will pine for one another. They are also attributed the ability to mend relationships.  Having a pair of mandarin ducks in the home, for example, will enhance a couple's love life.
