Known as Fuk Luk Sau, these Three Star Deities personify the three important aspirations of mankind: Happiness, Wealth and Longevity.
Representing happiness and harmony, Fuk deity carries a scroll and sometimes a children with him for good descendant luck. Luk deity holds a scepter of office called Ru Yi, or a gold ingot to symbolize prosperity, authority and wealth. Luk deity always stands in the center and ensures your career success and enhanced income luck. Sau deity is depicted as carrying a staff and a peach, also known as the fruit of immortality. Sometimes, the gourd containing the Elixir of life is tied on the staff. He symbolizes good health and longevity.
They radiate boundless inner harmony and great warmth. Seldom missing from any Chinese home that believes in Feng Shui, the Chinese strongly believe that if you place the Fuk Luk Sau in a place of prominence in your dining and living room, they will bring you harmony and continuous good fortune for the household. These Star Gods are rarely worshipped at an altar. They are regarded more as symbolic representations than as deities, and thus have little religious significance.
Fuk Luk Sau should be placed on a high side table, preferably at the height of eye view with a solid wall behind them in the dining room or living room from where they are said to create auspicious chi for the entire household. At the office, Fuk Luk Sau can be placed behind you giving vital support and good fortune.
