This beautiful tassel features Five Fortune Bats surrounding the Chinese characters 平安 (ping an) which translates as “peace and safety”. It is adorned with a creative knot and finished off with a matching tassel.
In traditional China, The Bat is a popular auspicious symbol of good luck and wealth because the sound for Bats in Chinese, ‘Fuk’ is similar to good fortune and happiness. When the bats appear in five (‘wu fu’), it expresses the collective desire for wealth, health, longevity, a virtuous life, and natural death. Besides the Dragon Bats were popular images used in embroidery on imperial robes for high-ranking officials and the emperor. The designs were usually combined with another symbol of longevity such as cranes to connote long life and happiness.
