Background & History Wu Fu Wu fu is known as Five Blessings or Five Luck traditionally in Chinese. The word “Bat” in Chinese sounds identical to the word for luck, which is a pair of homophones implied linguistic symbolism. Due to the similarity in pronunciation in Chinese spoken language, the symbolic meaning of “Bat” is commonly recognized as good fortune in Chinese culture. The number five is regarded as an auspicious number in Chinese traditions and closely associated with the Five Elements, which are essential for a good life as well as the basic organisational principle in Chinese thought. As a result, the number five appears ubiquitously as in the Five Blessings. According to Chinese culture, when five bats grouped together, an auspicious meaning “Five good fortunes” is created. {IMAGES}
