This is a gorgeous representation of the auspicious Wu Lou carved out of wood and enhanced with images of the Feng Shui Trigram Bagua, Yin Yang symbol, and Chinese characters 镇宅 (Zhen Zhai) meaning “protecting the home”.
The Wu Lou or Wu Lu (also known as Calabash or Chinese Gourd), often associated with Sau, the longevity God, is a well-known symbol of good health and longevity. It is believed to contain the elixir of health, vitality, and immortality has the power to absorb sickness energy, storing it in its endless bottom in order not to let the sickness chi hurt you. In Chinese mythology, the Wu Lou is often used by Taoist monks and deities to suck and bottle up evil spirits into it, preventing them from doing harm. Hence the Wu Lou can be used as a powerful Feng Shui cure to absorb negative chi especially those brought by bad stars such as #2 and #5. Wu Lou is thus a powerful traditional symbol of longevity, good health, prosperity, and an abundance of blessings. The shape of a Wu Lou is believed to be a representation of Heaven and Earth united in miniature.
The Pa Kua (or Bagua) is a traditional Feng Shui cure commonly used for protection against the most malignant type of energies – the killing energy or Shar Chi generated from ‘poison arrows’ directed to your house, shop, or building. According to the ancient wisdom of the I-Ching, everything in existence can be classified and analyzed using one of the 8 trigrams in the Bagua. Pa Kuas also acts as powerful deterrents of evil spirits and people with bad intentions towards you. The Yin Yang symbol in the center is highly regarded as an image of perfection, symbiosis, and unity.
The Wooden Wu Lou with Yin Yang Pa Kua for Protection is thus not only a health enhancer but a powerful protector for you and your family. Together, all the symbols of longevity, healing, harmony, and protection will safeguard you against illness and bad luck, ensuring a long, healthy, and prosperous life.
