One of the 5 most famous animals in Chinese mythology. He was born on the 18th day of the second lunar month, an extremely symbolic date in Asia. This is the ninth child of the Jade Emperor's celestial dragon The ninth son of the dragon borrows the massive and powerful appearance of the lion. His body is topped by a dragon's head. And it adorns itself with a pair of wings, for good measure.
Today, the pixiu 貔貅, or pi xiu or pi yao – male or female – has only one horn. Whereas, in the past, the female wore two horns to distinguish her from the male, who wore only one.
There emerges from the whole an air of strength and ferocity, accentuated by the clearly exposed fangs. It is that the pixiu is a celestial guardian, responsible for preventing the intrusion of demons and evil spirits, he fiercely protects his master. The pixiu is of noble extraction, it feeds on stones and precious metal symbols of its nobility of character.
The legend of Pi Xiu or Pi Yao tells that the latter deliberately disobeyed a heavenly law and that the jade emperor went into a black rage. To teach him the lesson and punish him, he would have condemned the latter to feed only on gold and silver. He then made her anus disappear in order to prevent her from evacuating everything he ate. He would therefore be obliged to keep his loot in his belly but could never access or use it. A horrible punishment when you love silver and gold so much!
The story says that the pixiu attacks demons and evil spirits whose vital essence it transforms into riches. It is therefore often used to attract some financial prosperity, hence the gold bars or coins that accompany it. Pixiu is also used to defeat or prevent demons and evil spirits that cause disease. In traditional feng shui, a metal pixiu is used as a remedy for some delicate qi. It is placed in particular: · In the annual sector afflicted by the three killers (san sha, 三煞). ·
The sector of Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter, 太歲) or Sui Po especially if this sector is frequently disturbed (for example if the main entrance door is there). It is for this reason that the Pi Xiu or Pi Yao is, in Asia, the symbol of conquest and gain.
It brings luck and fortune,
it promotes the proper circulation of Qi.
it increases wealth,
it protects people and homes,
it removes bad luck and obstacles,
and it fosters good opportunities.
Pi Xiu statutes are very common in Asian households. Considered a guardian and protector, the latter are venerated.
To place them well and use them, it is still best to follow the rules of feng shui.
They are used as are tigers and dragons in order, mainly, to ward off bad luck and repel harmful energies.
The pixiu is placed near a door, facing outwards.
Given its fierce nature and its mission to protect against evil spirits, one does not turn the pixiu in the direction of another person, unless of course you want to tell him that he is a declared enemy and have decided some dubious magic operation.
Pendants depicting a pixiu are commonly found.
In this case, pixiu acts rather as a protection against harmful influences, especially for health.
Pi Xiu remains very loyal and loyal to his assigned master.
If you are moving into a new house or have done a lot of work, it is advisable to place the Pi Xiu statue in your living room.
