Fu means good fortune in Chinese and the ideogram for Fu is a common symbol worn or displayed for good luck. A similar sound of Fu means bat, and bats are, therefore, considered lucky. Representations of bats are common and they are said to bring good fortune. They are used alone and in groups of five, an auspicious number.

 

The origin is tied to the fact that the word for good fortune - "Fu" - is a homophone for the word for bat. (The sound is the same though the inflection is different.) Accordingly, the bat is a representation of luck and good fortune. There seems to be no direct connection to the now recognized healthful benefits of bats: they eat many times their weight in harmful insects - particularly disease-carrying mosquitoes.

 

The ideogram has origins in good fortune, too. It is supposed to represent a god, on the left, blessing a farm on the right. The four quarters of the farm are represented by the "box" divided into four sections.

 

Luck Factory has both the ideogram for "Fu", meaning good fortune or blessings, and representations of the Fu Bat. Choose one or both to gather the propitious properties of Fu to you.
