5 Fortune Bats with Medicine Wheel
This design is an amalgamation of the Wu Fu (five fortune bats), the Chinese philosophy of the Five Phases (wood, water, fire, Earth, metal) and the Canadian First Nations philosophy of the Medicine Wheel (four directions and center). These philosophies have manifold meanings that parallel each other in copious ways. Most notable are their uses in physical and mental health. At the heart of these philosophies lies the principle of balance, understanding of the cyclical nature of life, seasons, directions and respect for the process of rejuvenation. The Wu Fu symbolizes good fortune through the Five Happiness?s: health, wealth, longevity, virtue, and a natural death. The red bat specifically encompasses the luck of vast fortune.
