Stories of Each Ji Jian Wu

The horse symbolises success in the Chinese culture because of a commonly known idiom, 马到功成 (Ma Dao Gong Cheng), which means to achieve immediate victory.

In Chinese language, a word or phrase can often have multiple interpretations. 马上 (Ma Shang) can mean “immediately” or, “on top of the horse”.

By placing different objects on top of the horse, it conveys the meaning of achieving something soon or immediately.
