In traditional Chinese thought, one of the five main pillars of life and harmony is longevity. It’s great to be financially secure or lucky, but without good health and longevity, no amount of luck in the world is worth it. This is where peaches, also known as the fruit of heaven because of their properties of immortality come into the picture. These auspicious fruits represent a long, healthy, and prosperous life for many generations.
This figurine of three pretty peaches in delicate shades of blushing pink not only looks good enough to eat but bears promises of health, abundance, and longevity. Sitting daintily on a stand, it not only adds a touch of charm to your dining, bedroom, or living room but generates good Feng Shui energy to ensure a long and happy life.
With many famous tales and folklores connected to it, the Peach has long been regarded as a traditional symbol for good health, longevity, and immortality. The Peach is always seen carried by ‘Sau’ of one of the famous Three Star Deities Fuk Luk Sau that represents longevity. The magical peaches were said to be consumed by the immortals due to their mystic virtue of conferring longevity on all who ate them. In Chinese mythology, it is said that the Goddess of the West ‘Hsieh Hwang Mu’ has a garden of peach trees in heaven that bloom and bear fruits once every two thousand years. Legend has it that the Eight Immortals will be invited by the Goddess of the West for a feast when her trees bear fruits, which is how the beloved eight Taoist deities attained immortality. The most famous folk tale related to the peaches would probably be Journey to the West, where the infamous Monkey God stole and ate the peaches of immortality from the garden of the Goddess of the West and became immortal and indestructible.
