Píxiū (貔貅)

Published: July 11, 2018
Description

This is a Chinese mythical hybrid creature, considered to be a powerful protector of practitioners of Feng Shui. It resembles a winged lion. Pixiu is connected to wealth. It is said to have a voracious appetite towards only gold, silver and jewels. Therefore, Pixiu has always been regarded as an auspicious creature that possessed mystical powers capable of drawing Cai Qi (財氣 wealth) from all directions. We got this figurine from a jade carving studio in Beijing. #art #sculpture
