God of Happiness and Good Luck
The Fu star is generally depicted in scholar's dress, holding a scroll.


God of prosperity
The Lu star is usually depicted in the dress of a mandarin.

God of Longevity
Shou Star is usually seen holding the Peach of Immortality, and carrying a peach wood staff.

Fu Xing is a star that the ancient Chinese thought was in charge of agriculture in China. Today, Fu Xing is generally shown as a court official with a characteristically "winged" hat, and often with a scepter in his hand.

The Lu star is believed to be Zhang Xian who lived during the Later Shu dynasty. The word "lu" specifically refers to the salary of a government official. As such, the Lu star is the star of prosperity, rank, and influence.

This character Shou represents 'long life'. According to Chinese folklore, Longevity is described as wise, knowledgeable and capable of ruling the world. During festivals, a Chinese family normally worships the symbols or pictures of Longevity to express gratitude for granting the elders in the family a long life. This Shou statue will bring you a 'long and fruitful life'.
