This beautiful incense burner featuring the Wealth God is made of Purple clay or Zisha, a fine-textured and porous material found only in Yixing, China, giving rise to it being also known as Yixing clay. Looking kindly and benevolent, he is depicted offering a giant ingot which symbolizes the gift of good fortune and wealth wherever he is displayed; homes or offices.
The incense burner is used to burn incense, a ritual that has been practiced throughout history as one of the most popular methods to symbolically bless, clean, enhance and purify the atmosphere or Chi in a living or workspace. The aromatic smoke of the incense will enliven stale energy, create a sense of tranquility and produce Seng Chi, the intrinsic energy which brings good fortune. This burner can be used to hold both cones and standard incense sticks.
