It’s the Year of the Dragon and Gump’s San Francisco is praising the majestic beast from the 2012 Chinese New Year with their exotic exhibit now through February 26 featuring a breathtaking Asian-inspired collection of art, sculpture and decorative accents for your home.

The mythical monsters, which symbolize good luck in the Chinese culture, are the only creature that is legendary within the 12-year cycle of animals in the Chinese zodiac.

From paintings by Andy Skaff, Christine MacDonald, and Jane Richardson Mack, to ceramics by Carla Biondi, Darin Gehrke, Angela de Mott, Terrie Kvenild and Anne Goldman, you are sure to find something irresistible for your environment.

In addition, Gumps’s own assortment of stunning dragon-themed desireables for a variety of price points, such as contemporary glass art by Liuli, make reference to the regal legend.

“Enlightened by Auspicious,” above, $3,318, is quite an investment piece for even the beauty obsessed.

Alternately, and on a more financially friendly level, you can always pick up this pen box, made from bamboo with bronze inlay, below, for $90.
