This gorgeous Education and Scholastic Key Chain amulet feature the Carp crossing the Dragon Gate on one side and the Chi Lin with Four Scholastic Objects on the other to signify good all-around education.
The legend of double Carps determined to cross the Dragon Gate against the strong current of the Yellow River and then transforming into mighty Dragons upon crossing the gate has become a powerful academic energizer. Having to swim upstream and jump rapids in order to achieve their goal, the carps have therefore become an emblem of perseverance and a symbol of pursuit for high ambitions and excellence, a powerful symbol that brings literary and scholastic luck, perfect for students or anyone pursuing a new skill.
The auspicious Chi Lin stepping on 4 scholastic objects is another symbol of success and good education and academic luck. The four implements denote the Four Arts of the Chinese Scholar, which were the main requirements of the Chinese scholar gentleman. During the time of Imperial China, for one to be considered scholarly, or a man of the arts, they must excel in all the four Arts. All of these arts combined made for a platform by which scholars could compete against each other’s strengths in creativity, expression, ideas, and thinking power.
Carrying the Education and Scholastic Key Chain with you at all times will enhance creativity, expression, and good grades. If you are a student, this will bring you good luck in your studies and examinations. Those in the academic or literary field will have a productive and successful time.
