Fortune, Prosperity, Longevity and Happiness

This design of Fortune, Prosperity, Longevity and Happiness are inspired by the Chinese unique characters – Fortune () is a combination of Chinese characters “” (“Ping” in Chinese) and “” (“An” in Chinese), which mean peace; Prosperity (祿) is formed by “” (“Yi” in Chinese, means cloths) and “” (“Shi” in Chinese, means food); “” (“Sheng” in Chinese) and “” (“Ming” in Chinese) which mean life, form the word Longevity () when they come together. While there are plum blossoms that symbolise happiness in the word Happiness () making it double happiness blessings.

Other than these, there are auspicious motives hidden in respective words – they are peach of immortality in Fortune (), peony the symbol of wealth in Prosperity (祿), evergreen pine in Longevity () and plum blossom in Happiness ().
