The designs on the inksticks are:

  • 福 Fu – good fortune, appears with a bat: bat in chinese has the same pronounciation 蝠 fú so a bat is lucky in China, especially upside-down since “upside-down bat” sounds the same as “fortune has arrived”
  • 禄 Lu – prosperity, rank and influence, shows the Immortal sitting on a Dragon
  • 寿 Shou – shows the Immortal of longevity
  • 喜 Xi – two magpies: magpie is Chinese is 喜鹊 XiQue so two magpies is double Xi, double happiness

The first three 福禄寿 are also the 三官 Three Officials or Three Immortals of Daoism.

  1. Too beautiful to use!
    I got this for a friend as a Christmas gift, what a lovely item, even better than I thought, so much so that I wanted to keep it for myself, but eventually parted with it. Needless to say my friend was delighted.

  2. Very nice starter ink sticks – designs are beautiful. Definitely recommended for beginning level use! Lighter tones.
