The pachira (pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant whose flowers give edible nuts. Although native to South America, its symbolism is strongest in Asia. According to the Chinese tradition, its palmate leaves resemble hands that catch the good fortune of which the twisted trunk becomes the guardian.

Also popular in Japan and Taiwan, it is often used for ornamental purposes and makes a great housewarming gift by guaranteeing happiness and prosperity to the new home.

The fruits of the pachira are those of the work of art:
To the one who cherishes it, it will exalt his artistic passion and his interior.
To the one who invests, it guarantees a safe, even prosperous investment.

The Louvre is appealing to the donations and generosity of our fellow citizens to finance the acquisition of the Citharid Apollo. This is an ancient bronze sculpture. The aim is to raise at least 800,000 euros.

The aim of this acquisition is to allow the public to discover this masterpiece.

The “Pachir’art” team, whose mission is to make art accessible to as many people as possible, has decided to participate in this operation.

For this reason, Pachir’art will donate part of its turnover from December until the end of this campaign, which will end in February 2020, to the Louvre.
