Original Chinese spontaneous painting of Mandarin ducks with Lotus flowers. Mandarin ducks pair for life hence they are called the birds of love in Ancient China. They do everything together, fly, swim and sleep with their necks crossed. If one dies the other will remain single. Because of this Mandarin ducks have become the symbol of marriage and are given as a wedding present to wish good luck and perfect bliss.
