 “We wanted this masterpiece to revolve around Pixiu, a Chinese hybrid mythical creature believed to be a protector and wealth promoter, and is a figure ever-present in powerful and grandiose feats of victory in battle, representing the values of courage and resilience that are common between our Nicaraguan and Asian cultures. This is not about cultural appropriation; on the contrary, it is an expression of cultural interconnection and profound friendship. We want to share with Asian cigar connoisseurs one of our cigars we feel the proudest of and with it all the positive things Pixiu and the Chinese Lucky Clouds can give them and us”
