Red Pixiu w. Coin Zisha Tea Pet
This cute pixiu tea pet has a secret. He is guarding a gold coin. Made in Yixing, China's zisha production center, this pixiu would be a great addition to any tea tray. The pixiu is one of China's most bizarre mythological creatures. They are an important part of fengshui and it is believed that they will be wealth. According to legend, the pixiu broke one of heaven's laws and the jade emperor punished him by only allowing him to eat gold. He also sealed the pixiu's anus, so he could only consume gold and not get rid of any. It is this characteristic of obtaining gold, but not getting rid of it that makes it a favorite with businessmen.
