Academic Ornament - Energy Infused
Material: Earth Material
First and foremost, the mountain is a symbol
of permanence and immovability and also the emblem of powerful
support and protection from reversal of fortune. Regarded as the
most powerful symbol on earth, mountains played the same sort
of role in Chinese Cosmology as the Emperor did in society; they
ensured cosmic order and permanence. This special ornament inscribed
with a well known proverb "Tu Chan Ao Thou, Kui Xing Thi
Dou" is associated to the God of Examination (Kui Xing).
Literally, it translates to "stand lonely on the giant turtle's
head", meaning coming in first in examinations for those sitting
for important examinations. It also have special connotation for
those in business or career where one will climb up to be first
on top. The name 'Kui Xing' literally means "Chief Star", and
anciently referred to the 'spoon' of the Big Dipper (featured
behind the mountain with a brush and a book storage). The Chun
Qiu Yun Dou Shu defines the ‘Kui Xing' as "the four stars in the
first section of the dipper". The 'handle' was referred to as
the ladle/spoon. Kui Xing's original name is the original name
of the star in the Big Dipper located furthest from the 'handle'
- Dubhe. Also featured in front of the mountain is the
old tale of the "Carp Jumping and Crossing over the Dragon
Gate", reminding one of the ability to resist hurdles and
achieving success.Portraying perseverance and determination,
the carp is a tough fish that could resist big currents in China's
ancient Yellow River. The carp is able to persistently resist
hardship, swim upstream and rapidly jump above the tides to reach
the heaven, denoting great achievement in ones pursuit or high
ambition. This stunning figurine constitutes a meaningful and
prestigious gift to wish one success in imperial examinations,
business, career or studies.

In Daoist tradition, Kui Xing is said to
have been "bent and hunchbacked, as if he were an actual calligraphy
character", and came to be viewed as a saint of human fortune,
particularly with regard to imperial examinations. Late Ming Dynasty
scholar Gu Yan-Wu, often referred to as Gu Ting-Lin, wrote of
Kui Xing in his Record of Historical Knowledge: "The date of the
beginning of modern people's veneration of Kui Xing is unknown.
Since Kui was taken to be the master of composition, therefore
the people established shrines to venerate him. People depicted
Kui Xing's right foot standing on a giant turtle or fish and his left foot support a ladle, a writing brush in his hand, and his body full of vigor and life.
