The Piyao (The Fortune Beast) is a very powerful Feng Shui symbol. According to myth, during the Jade Emperor’s birthday in Heaven, the Piyao (or Pixiu) ate all the gold and silver inside the palace. The Jade Emperor punished the Piyao by restricting the Piyao’s diet to GOLD and by preventing it to expel the gold he has eaten, too. Since then, this mythical creature has been a symbol of wealth acquisition and preservation. The Piyao is the youngest (9th) son of the Dragon King and with its large fangs can attack evil spirits and demons. He drains their spirit essence and converts it to wealth. As winged lion, its courageous stance and fierce expression wards off evil spirits and protects its owner from accidents and dangers. An obedient and loving companion, he is a favorite amongst traditional Feng Shui practitioners.
