Angel's Comment:

Carrying auspicious and promising implication, this God of Wealth Zisha Tea Pet looks vivid and pleasant, and is also a great choice for decoration and appreciation.

According to Chinese ancient myths and legends, the God of Wealth is in charge of people’s wealth and treasure. He not only bears the people’s devout hope for peace and contentment, good fortune and affluent life, and also motivates people’s struggling spirit and ambitions. Exquisitely formed in the common image of God of Wealth, this zisha tea pet can bring you delightfulness from the vivid and genial smile on the face. From observing, you’ll find a tiny hole under the white teeth of the God of Wealth, which will bubble when meeting hot water. The thick and large earlobe on his cheek means wisdom and good fortune in traditional Chinese culture. The God of Wealth holds a Yuan Bao (元宝 yuán bǎo) in his right hand and a scroll in his left, which engraved four Chinese characters: 招财进宝, meaning bringing in wealth and treasure.
