1. A symbol that has been used for thousands of years in feng shui, such as the Tortoise, the Laughing Buddha, or the Dragon and the Phoenix pair.
2. A symbol that is used in modern feng shui applications mostly for their expression of the 5 feng shui elements. A row of metal vases, for example, will bring a strong presence of the Metal feng shui element; a fireplace will bring the energy of Fire, etc.
