In Chinese culture, it is believed that by surrounding one's self with lucky objects and images, we can increase our chances of finding true happiness. This exquisite book explores the rich symbolic meaning behind the five most auspicious Chinese concepts of good fortune: luck, prosperity, longevity, happiness, and wealth. Lavishly illustrated from ancient and moderns sources, and with text in both Chinese and English, Five-fold Happiness reveals the deeper meanings in these ideals as they occur in everyday life. Notice anew the cat with one paw beckoning at the entrance of shops and restaurants. Leam the significance of peaches, goldfish, the dragon dance, and the color red. Discover the benefits of ginseng, oysters, and shrimp. But most of all, find in the pages of this delightful book a way of welcoming these and many other symbols of good fortune into your own life.
