Application of Animals Figurine or Specimen in Feng Shui Studies

Animals figurine or specimen applied in Feng Shui is separated into two categories;

1. Animals that is non existence in the world

2. Animals that exist in the world and dignified.

 

1. Animals that is non existence in the world:

All animals applied in Feng Shui is represented by the five elements such as fishes is represented by Water in the five elements. But animals that is non existence in the world is not represented by the five elements cause the use of animals non existence in the world is not part of Feng Shui study. Its part of Chinese folk tales or mythology used by certain Feng Shui practitioners. The use of animal’s non existence in the world such as ' Pi Xiu', 'Qi Lin', 'Tu Jue Shou' and 'Long Gui' can be traced back thousands of years. During the ancient days in the Middle Kingdom common peoples are engross in making a living by tilling the fields thus have no time to tender to their children. Children are left to themselves and this have cause lots of mishap such as drowning or fallen over the cliff. In order to avoid more mishap thus they begin to carve stone animals of fierce and scary features to be place at high mishap areas to keep children away from these areas. The stone animals seems to have help so in return the elder begin to respect and appreciate what this animals have done. Chinese were taught to always respect and appreciate the goodwill or favour given, regardless of who, whom or what provided the favour. These animals has since been respected and included in the teaching that it will guard and protect our safety. This has been handed down one generation after another shows the usefulness of these animals.

2. Animals that exist in the world and being dignified.

In Feng Shui study, animals such as Lion, Tiger, Dragon (resemblance of snake), Phoenix (resemblance of chicken) and Crane are often applied. Some of the animals has been further dignified to project it as more majestic. Animals such as Snake and Chicken lack the strength or ability thus to further enhance the lacking it was than rename plus given new features and the outcome is Dragon and Phoenix. All auspicious animals applied symbolize Power, Strength, Ability, Courage and Confident for peoples to emulate. By placing it at home is to psychologically enhance occupants self confident so he/she could have a more positive attitude when performing all undertaking. The main reason why certain animals applied need to be projected as more majestic. Other example of such animal is 'Qi Lin' that has been projected as more majestic than dog. Qi Lin is the majestic bearing of a dog with extra to make it more fearsome.

 

Animals attribute: All animals applied in Feng Shui is represented by one element out of the five elements (Gold, Wood, Water, Fire, Earth) in accordance to Feng Shui study.
