Made of high quality golden brass, this is a supreme version of the golden Wu Lou tied with the circular interlocking 6-Emperor coins tassel. There is also a bagua at the bottom of the wulou for protection and ultimate blessings. To meet strict requirement of ancient-style classical masters, the shaped of this wulou is further enhanced with a wider mouth and exaggerated to emulate the shape of “Dui Trigram” to counter Illness star. In period-8, where earth energy becomes extremely heightened, especially the deadly star-5 and illness star-2, this wulou is therefore extremely powerful to dissolve them. This wulou is protective in nature and is able to dissolve illnesses, prevent injuries, prevent accidents and avoid bad luck. You may also place this wulou in your personal Tien Yi direction to ensure no deadly diseases befall on you.
On the other hand, there are 6 Emperor coins from the first six most powerful reign of the Ching Dynasty being tied in the “circular interlocking” method. Coins designed in chinese style by itself represent good money luck. 6 coins tied in a circular manner, with a set of 3 coins (representing the matrimony of Heaven-Earth-Man) interlocking another set of 3 other coins to result in 6 coins in a circular mode represent the 6 senses of man. The six senses of man are love, fright, hatred, happiness, suspicion and proactiveness which is believed to govern a man’s wealth making capabilities. It is believed that by tying the 6 coins in this special manner, a man is able to harness his wealth because he is able to control his 6 senses with the power invoke through the cosmic trinity of Heaven, Earth and Man. This makes the wulou a powerful wealth magnet as well!
All the above characteristics of this wulou therefore make it most supreme compared to the others. This Wu Lou is further empowered for Feng Shui use with a ribbon tied around it.
Note: Beware! Some immitation of our supreme wulou sold by others were tied with incorrect type of coins.
What Wu Lou symbolizes and how to place the object?
Wu Lou (bottle gourd) originates from a fruit. When dried, it is very durable and its shape render it useful as a receptacle for medicine. The Wu Lou was often carried by aged people as a charm of longevity and a charm to dissipate or ward off pernicious influences. The Wu Lou, like baguas and windchimes, is one of the most significant tools to cure many bad situations and enhance our Feng Shui. It is the powerful symbol of health and longevity. Many deities like the Sau Sing Kung (in 3 Lucky Stars Fuk Luk Sau), Li Tieh Kuai (in 8 Immortals) and Mad Monk God (Chai Kung) carry this excellent item with them to resemble their blessings to cure difficult ailment. Some said the shape of the wu lou is also a wonderful integration of heaven, earth and mankind. Deities and taoist monks even use the Wu Lou to absorb bad evil spirits into it for imprisonment. Therefore Wu Lou has the potency to absorb bad chi and negative energy.
There is an infamous harmful flying star, the annual Illness Star#2 which occupies a sector of our homes every year. This Illness Star#2 brings illnesses that could lead to long term suffering and fatality eventually. For those whose main doors or bedroom doors are facing towards the direction of this star or having a bedroom in the sector of this star will have to use the wulou in this area of your house as the BEST cure for this star. The traditional use of the to cure this star is based on Yi Jing (I Ching). According to Eight Trigrams philosophy, the illness star#2 is represented by the “kun trigram”. And we know that changing the first and second lines of a trigram yields the Heavenly Doctor (Tien Yi). Changing first and second lines of “kun trigram” yields “dui trigram”. And the abstract representation of the “dui trigram” is actually the shape of the calabash. The actual dried fruit has a golden yellow color which could represent metal element. Later new feng shui masters created the bronze and brass wulou because they prefer real metal energy to counter the illness star#2.

Wu Lou in its natural form is better than immitations from other materials. Unless it is made by potent material like metal or crystal which plays a significant role in meneuvering chi of our surrounding. To activate a wu lou for feng shui purposes, it is essential to tie either a red thread or red ribbon around its “valley”. Some natural wu lou is even painted gold or added with special coins to absorb wealth luck. It becomes even more powerful when tied with red string and chinese coin around it. What is more, some taoist masters write talisman and bagua onto the wulou for added protection and attracting some special luck.

Defect rules built over time: Because they are held by tools and shaped through machining from blocks , there could be tiny tool marks or scratches visible under 30cm visual. Cast brass work experiences high heat process, gas defect, extreme shrinking and rough process steps, therefore they have “common irregularities” on their surfaces. They include blisters, bubbles, shrinkages, cavities, scratch lines, dents, tarnishes, dark spots, oxides etc. They are NOT considered as faulty and therefore are non rejectable. Despite obtaining from factories that provide high brass purity and the best in workmanship that supply only grade A pieces to us, common irregularities are still unavoidable.
