Pi Xiu lives on earth and Pi Kan lives in the sea. All of them
brings the same blessings and possess the same properties. The
Pi Yao is a protective heavenly creature that has one horn, lion-dog
face, hoofs and little wings and a tail. They are best shown sitting

and only eats but does not dispose. It has a big and infinite
appetite. For the naturally greedy businessmen and merchants or
housewives out there, if you intend to only have lots of money
luck coming in and ensure the money never be spent, the Pi Yao
