Ji Jian Wu Bronze Miniature - Pi Xiu 貔貅
Pi Xiu is a powerful and ferocious protector. It resembles a strong winged lion that wards off evil and is responsible for safety in heaven. During one of Jade Emperor‘s parties, Pi Xiu ate many treasures and left stools everywhere. To punish Pi Xiu, Jade Emperor removed its rectum and the treasures eaten were stored in his tummy without the ability to pass them out. Thus, Pi Xiu is seen as a sign of protection and a guard of wealth to prevent money from flowing away.
In Feng Shui practice, Pi Xiu has the power to attract wealth and keeps the vile away.
Inspired by the richness of Chinese culture embedded in Feng Shui article, the Ji Jian Wu collection presents a contemporary take on these traditional objects. Whether or not you are a believer, the receiver is gifted with well-wishes.
