Good - Medium Condition

Crafted Fu-Lu-Shou statue, also known as the Three Star Gods, each one representing a different meaning:

Shou Xing, on the very right, is the star god of longevity. He is often called the “Old man of the South Pole”. Shou Xing is easy to recognize with his long forehead. He carries the peach of longevity and a staff.

Legend has it that Shou Xing has the power to fix the date of every person’s death. He decides beforehand how long every human will live.

Fu Xing, in the middle of the statue, has proven to bring happiness, prosperity and good luck to all those who need it the most.

Fu is the star god of happiness, prosperity and good fortune. Fu is the bringer of good luck.

Lu Xing, standing on the left, is dedicated to the sixth star of the Wen Chang cluster, in the West known as Ursa Majoris. Lu refers to salary and thus he is the star god of social status. Lu Xing gives blessings when taking difficult exams and competing for the best high paying jobs. This is all about great career success, authority, fame and fortune. Having career success and fame naturally leads to huge amounts of wealth.

At the feet of the gods one can find two children and a pot full of food and other valuables representing the wealth the gods can bring.

Dimensions: 17 x 8 x 13 cm
Weight: 1,6 kg

The statue is ready for international shipment with UPS and is also available for self collection in Berlin, Germany.

    This is also written in the description : made of mixed metal .
    So I dont know where is your problem with the item. The sand
    is normal as it is used during the lost wax casting process.

    Het item is goed aangekomen, maar de verpakking was niet erg degelijk.
    De bronzen schildpad bewoog los in de doos en de doos was beschadigd.

    Ok there are two different tiger in bronze. One is on a marble base and the other not. As you can see on the pictures attached.
    The holes are in the bronze tiger to put them on the marble base.
    To open a dispute on this matter this is not the correct way as you are writing in the feedback.
  • Sehr freundlicher Verkäufer, top Ware. Hat alles reibungslos geklappt.
    Auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen
