A kylin is a mythical auspicious beast, once revered in ancient China. The kylin’s form is part deer, part dragon, part ox, part horse and part fish, and it was said to appear before virtuous rulers. In Japan, it was also revered as one of the four sacred beasts, alongside the phoenix, the dragon and the turtle. A symbol of good fortune, peace and prosperity, it is seen in the design of swords and their metalwork adornments. The Kiritake (paulownia & bamboo) motif is a symbol of good fortune and noble gentility.
