This elegant inside painted snuff bottle depicts lychees ready to be harvested, but two cicadas are enjoying its ripeness. A cicada symbolizes eternal youth because its life cycle is longer than that of any other insect. It spends seven to thirteen years under the ground before returning to the earth’s surface and develops into a long-legged insect. Reincarnation and immortality are also associated with the cicada.
