This mystical good luck creature is the ninth son of the Heavenly Dragon whose task is to provide the blessings of good finance and wealth luck. The Pi Yao also has a very unique look and is a combination of a variety of animals. It has the face of a lion-dog and a single horn. It has 4 legs and hooves, as well as a tail and tiny wings. A very fascinating fact about this creature is that it does not have an anus, so that, despite its never-ending appetite for gold and silver, things go in yet never come out. This is a unique symbolism, indicating that money will come to you but never leave. The Pi Yao can be placed singly or in a pair. When placed as a pair, the Pi Yao becomes known as Tian Lu (Heavenly Protector) and Pi Xie (Evil Dispeller).
The Pi Yao is found in many places in Oriental countries, such as banks, casinos, and finance companies – anything that has to do with a benefit from monetary gain. Since ancient times, when it served to safeguard the homes of emperors and government officials, the Chinese have always adored and revered this extremely good luck symbol. It is a very loyal creature, and will always attempt to rid its owner’s life of bad luck and replace it with wealth luck.
The Pi Yao is believed to offer its owner a minimum of eight blessings, which are named below:
1. Brings fortune and good tidings
2. Producer of good Feng Shui or Earth luck

4. Safeguards the home and the residents in it
