The Chinese longevity lock used on doors and boxes, have a long established association with protection of the unknown.  They are decorated with both Chinese characters and symbols.  In this piece the lock is in the form of a moth.  I decided on this one to go more monochromatic and added the fabulous tassels!   The lock is about 4 1/2 inches at its widest point. What a statement you will make walking in with this one on!!!!
