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.

Pi Xiu (貔貅)

Pi Xiu is a powerful and ferocious protector. It resembles a strong winged lion that wards off evil and is responsible for safety in heaven.

During one of Jade Emperor‘s parties, Pi Xiu ate many treasures and left stools everywhere. To punish Pi Xiu, Jade Emperor removed its rectum and the treasures eaten were stored in his tummy without the ability to pass them out. Thus, Pi Xiu is seen as a sign of protection and a guard of wealth to prevent money from flowing away.

About the Artist

The Ji Jian Wu Collection was privileged to be hand-selected by Wendy Chua and Gustavo Maggio of design studio Forest & Whale and featured as one of the seven designs by emerging Singaporean designers for the Visions of the Future Exhibition from 10th December 2020 to 7th January 2021.
