  Hua Ha

 

Thailand

Hua Ha is the Thai-Tae Chew name of a statue of a loving couple of Chinese Immortals (Xian), the man depicted holding a lotus leaf, the girl with a box, which sometimes is decorated with a stylized Chinese bat-symbol known as fu (fig.). The statue is said to promote love and amicable relations, and to bring harmony or reconciliation into households and work places, where it is erected.
