Chasing the Pearl takes its inspiration from Mr. Naoto Fukasawa’s design for the Tang Prize Medal. His design, in form and feel, radiates a sense of movement as it spirals upwards,
while evoking images of a dragon twisting and turning in flight. In Chinese tradition, the theme of a dragon chasing after a pearl is an analogy for the endless pursuit of wisdom. Mr. Fukasawa’s winning design captures that very idea—life, bursting with energy and burning with curiosity, pursues knowledge through the infinite frontier of the possible; altogether, it wonderfully encapsulates the spirit of the Tang Prize and pays tribute to the esteemed laureates.
