Fuk Luk Sau
My home has these Fuk Luk Sau since the day we moved in (2000). They were moved around the living room many times. I would just clean them with a damp cloth.
my most recent placement of the Fuk Luk Sau
Recently, I received a set of Fuk Luk Sau figurines
so I placed them at the comfy table of my new sofa set
This time, I guess they needed a bath.
They were cleaned..
I arranged them according to the placement of the gift.
I put the smiling Buddha facing the main door.
The Fuk Luk Sau, meaning “Three Lucky Immortals / Star Gods”, are a very popular symbol to display in Asian homes or offices. Fuk Luk Sau bring authority, success, fame and fortune.
These three star deities are strong icons of the most essential aspirations on which humankind depends; wealth, happiness and longevity. Each of these deities are often shown carrying with them different items with auspicious meanings – Fuk holds with him a scroll, which symbolizes beneficial inherent luck; he is also sometimes seen holding a child - which symbolizes good descendant luck. Luk, who is always seen in the center of the three deities, carries a gold ingot, or a “Ru Yi” (scepter of office), and symbolizes prosperity. Sau holds in his hands a staff and a Wu Lou or a peach (the fruit of immortality). Sau is a symbol of longevity and a healthy life.
