Three Wise Men also known as Fuk Luk Sau, these Deities represent the
three most important manifestations of health, wealth and happiness. The
1st star Deity (Sau) carries a bottle of nectar and peach which
represents longevity. Fuk, the 2nd star deity, represents wealth and
good fortune. He
is generally depicted in scholar's dress, holding a scroll, on which
is sometimes written the character "Fu". He may also be seen holding a
child, or surrounded by children to signify descendants luck. The 3rd
star deity (Luk) represents prosperity and authority. He always holds
the Ru Yi scepter to signify the power of the high Government official.
Luk always stands in the center. This is interpreted as longevity, good
fortune and prosperity! Basically, Fuk Luk Sau signify overall good
luck. Fuk Luk Sau should be placed on a high side table in the dining
room from where they are said to create auspicious chi for the entire
household and overcome negative vibes. At the office, Fuk Luk Sau can be
placed behind you giving vital support and good fortune.
