Made in Taiwan, this porcelain god of prosperity good luck charm is perfect for hanging on cell phones, rear view mirrors, luggages, bags, and iPods. This tiny porcelain figurine good luck charm
features the Chinese deity: Lu, the God of prosperity, profit, and high-ranking officer.
In Chinese culture, there are three important gods of blessings: Fu (happiness), Lu (success and rank) and Shou (longevity). Often found side by side in a set of three, these three Chinese gods carry important symbolic meanings and constitute the Chinese belief of blessing. A blessed person would have all three kinds of blessings. Lu is the god looked to for success in careers, and recognition for effort.
This god of prosperity good luck charm carries the blessing of success and has a deeper symbolic meaning of growth and recognition at work. The figure of Lu, god of prosperity, is made out of porcelain, a highly valued and priced material in China and across the world. He wears the traditional garment of imperial officials with the hat showing a high official rank and a jade scroll that similarly suggests rank and success.
In a lovely bright red, blue, green and brown, this good luck charm showcases the low fire glaze technique practiced since the Tang dynasty. The smooth texture of porcelain is combined with the brilliantly colored glaze. The effect is a unique work of porcelain art.
This good luck charm also comes with an artfully knotted strap so hanging on bags, zips and phones is made easy. The strap is hand knotted with burgundy and gold strings with a decorative bead and a Chinese knot. A type of folk art, Chinese knots has become its own art form today. You can now bring this unique good luck charm home, and it will brighten up your things with its unique look and watch over your career at the same time.
