Stories of Each Ji Jian Wu

Inspired by the richness of Chinese Geomancy, the Ji Jian Wu (吉簡物) collection presents a contemporary take on Feng Shui objects that traditionally bring prosperity and blessing.

Jin Chan (麒麟): 

In a Chinese literary allusion, there was a golden toad that harmed people.

In order to seek atonement, the three-legged golden toad swallowed the treasures and followed Liu Hai to go from door to door to spit out treasures from its tummy to help the poor. Since then, people believed that when a three-legged golden toad comes to your house, it brings wealth to the family.

In Feng Shui practice, the Three-legged toad helps to bring wealth.
