Lu Xing

God of Affluence - Lu Xing - Good Luck Chinese Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is the "Star God of Rank and Affluence", or "Good Fortune Saint" of China. This saint is often associated with Taoism / Daoism. Images of this saint can be seen around the doors of homes throughout China (especially during Chinese New Years).

The Lu Xing or Lu Star (禄) is Ursa Majoris, or, in traditional Chinese astronomy, the sixth star in the Wenchang cluster. The appearance of Lu Xing is probably based on or meant to represent the poet and Taoist Zhang Xian who lived during the Song Dynasty.

In modern times, the character Lu is most often understood to mean prosperity, rank, and influence. However, the original meaning was the salary of a government official. Of course, having that kind of salary meant you were well off.

Please note that the xuan paper used for the painting on this wall scroll may have some embedded fibers, husks, or specks. This is not a defect, but a natural part of this handmade paper.



Sandy holding a Jin Bin Guan Gong wall scroll

Here is Sandy holding a different wall scroll by Jin Bin. This one is actually about 122cm or 48" long (smaller than most of the Jin Bin wall scrolls we sell). Even in this smaller size, it shows you how big these handmade wall scrolls are.

About the Art...
