  Lu

 

Thailand

Lu is always depicted with a long beard that usually sways to the left, whilst wearing a hat and often also holding an imperial scroll. He is the symbol of prosperity, wealth, fame, rank and progress in work. He is one of the Three Star Gods (fig.) and here he is portrayed holding a child, which in turn is holding the Chinese character foo (fig.) upside-down, in order to invite good luck to come (fig.).
