If you're a fan of any of these places you've probably noticed some kind of poster or calendar on the wall or maybe a statue that looked like this;
Well that's Cai Sheng, the traditional Chinese "god of wealth".
For my money, one of the best non-tangible benefits of studying Chinese martial arts (i,e, kung fu) is getting to know another culture up close.
When I was visiting Sifu downstate recently he gave me a calendar to bring home and when I put it up, my son was asking me what was going on in the image and I actually didn't know, but I reached out to my kung fu brothers and got some answers that I thought I would share with you.
That's Cai Sheng, the God of Wealth, plus a bunch of "Wealth-inviting boys". Think of it as Santa and his Elf helpers.Getting to learn about fun stuff like this is just one of the great benefits of studying a Chinese martial art like I Liq Chuan!
The green thing in midst the pile of gold is a jade "Ru-yi" to mean things will go as you wish.
The Chinese scrolls is saying "God of Wealth arrives, good fortune comes"
