All New Bliss of Harvest Jadeite Ring Collection

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 24 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 5mins

600 YEARS OF THE TEMPLE OF HEAVEN

To commemorate 600 years since the building of the renowned Temple of Heaven in Beijing, Imperial Harvest is proud to present the new generation of our Bliss of Harvest ring collection showcasing our highest level of skill and craftsmanship.

The Bliss of Harvest ring is arguably our most iconic collection, paying homage to the famous Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the Temple of Heaven. It exemplifies the historic links between Imperial Harvest and our imperial Feng Shui traditions.

Our new designs continue to set the highest standards for Imperial Feng Shui jewellery design, and is testament to Master David Goh’s bold and inspired vision.

BOH_newrings_black-yellow

Our lustrous 18K solid rose gold rings are created from a proprietary blend of pure gold, copper and silver - representing heaven, earth, and human elements.

The beautiful hue intensifies with age, and evokes the vibrant red found throughout the imperial temple, a colour deeply synonymous with prosperity and auspiciousness.

BOH_new_white-green

The Bliss of Harvest ring is embellished with the finest jadeite cabochon, perfectly round and glistening, resembling the gilded orb which crowns the Hall of Prayer. It takes hours of finely-honed craftsmanship to harvest the cabochon from a jadeite boulder, shaping it to perfection, and hand-polishing the gem to bring out the jadeite’s natural depth of colour.

The intricate design gives the impression of three separate bands wrapped gently around the finger, comforting and caressing the owner.

Elegant in form, and robust in construction, our tri-band rings take inspiration from the Hall of Prayer. Like the Bliss of Harvest ring, its roof is formed of three graceful circular tiers that build on each other, rising to a crescendo, and merging into one magnificent creation.

The Temple of Heaven (天坛)

BOH-main-imagetemple of heaven


The Temple of Heaven in Beijing is a vast imperial temple complex completed in 1420 under the reign of Emperor Yongle during the Ming Dynasty. It is not only a great architectural masterpiece, but was also the most important imperial temple for centuries, symbolising the profound relationship between heaven and earth.

The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest (祈年殿)

The main building within the temple complex is the circular, three-tiered Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests to the north. It is a grand, impressive, circular building with a visually harmonious three-tiered roof representing the cosmic trinity of Heaven, Earth and Human luck. The entire building is supported by 28 large pillars and was meticulously constructed without the use of any nails.

It was here during the winter solstice that the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties worshipped the God of Heaven and prayed for prosperity - every year, for hundreds of years.

The Legendary Designs of the Imperial White Ink Stone - Part 3

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 24 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins

The Imperial White Ink Stone is one of the most important Imperial Feng Shui treasures in our home collection. Since the Qing dynasty, the Imperial White Ink stone has been the preferred choice of Imperial Feng Shui treasure used to empower Chinese Emperors with grand benefactor support, authority and supreme wealth.

For home and business owners, the Imperial White Ink Stone also has the powerful ability to enhance the auspicious energy of one sector while countering three inauspicious sectors when it is installed in your home or commercial property. 

Aside from its impressive Imperial Feng Shui prowess, the Imperial White Ink Stone demonstrates the legacy of Imperial Harvest’s design excellence and superior craftsmanship. The design inspiration of each Imperial White Ink Stone can be traced to the works of a legendary Chinese artist.

Rivers of Treasures - Qi Bai Shi (齊白石)

legendary_artist_inkstone_part3

Qi Bai Shi was one of the most renowned and celebrated Chinese artists in modern history, his impressive list of accolades include “Outstanding Artist of the Chinese People”, “World Peace Prize” awarded by the World Peace Council and was selected as representative of the Chinese people at the National People’s Congress.

legendary_Artist_inkstone_3_drawing

Despite his humble beginnings, his works now number amongst the most expensive ever sold at auction.

The subjects of his paintings include almost everything, his favourite subject to paint however, was shrimp, a challenging feat for many artists. Using swift, definite and spontaneous brush strokes, Qi Bai Shi was able to vividly capture the liveliness of shrimps in his paintings.

legendary_artist_inkstone_3_drawing_2

Today, his iconic ink wash shrimp paintings are synonymous with the artist himself, whenever art connoisseurs see an ink wash painting of shrimps, they are mostly likely to utter the name Qi Bai Shi.

Since his passing in 1957, the market for Qi Bai Shi’s paintings has made headlines in the art market, both for China and the world. In 2016, his works held the second position by value (third by number of lots sold) by auction. At the end of 2017, the art world was rocked by the news that one of his collections catapulted him into the '$100 Million Club' by selling for $140.8 million (931.5 million yuan) at the Poly Auctions in Beijing, China.

Imperial White Ink Stone - River of Treasures

Legendary_river_of_treasure_0628

The River of Treasures is the result of Master David’s careful observations on the nuances of Qi Bai Shi’s unique artistic styles. 

The shrimp is a symbol of longevity and good fortunes and is associated with joy and happiness in Chinese culture. To convey this, Master David employed the techniques of “xie yi” (写意) with lively brush strokes and a playful tone. 

legendary_design_river_Inkstone_closeup

Master David applied varying depths of brushstrokes and the combination of “gong bi” and “xie yi” techniques. Each stroke produced variations of tonality to replicate the life-like features of the shrimp, which formed the basis for the beautiful shadows of black and gray hues found in Qi Bai Shi’s Shrimp paintings.

The Legendary Designs of the Imperial White Ink Stone - Part 2

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 18 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 3mins

As one of the world’s oldest civilizations, China boasts a rich history of fine art. Over the course of over 3,000 years, the country has crafted a vibrant culture made up of countless art forms that paints a picture of China’s fascinating evolution.

From a very early period, art forms like calligraphy, poetry, sculpture and paintwork were considered the supreme visual art form, which were highly valued by the high-rankings and educated during imperial dynasty rule. 

The intricate designs of the Imperial White ink stones draw references from the works of some of the most admired Chinese artists. Inspired by the clean and precise painting style of one the most important artists of contemporary China, Master David created the Royal Panda collection to pay tribute to the widely acclaimed, Wu Zuoren. 

Wu Zuoren (吴作人)

Born on November 3, 1908 in Suzhou, China, he studied painting under renowned artist Xu Beihong (徐悲鸿) at Shanghai University of the Arts. 

18092020 WIS blog Potrait

Wu Zuoren is renowned for his illustrations of scenery and nature, his work are fine examples of combining the art of traditional Chinese painting with that of Western painting. Simplicity, clear expression and vigour mark the works of this widely acclaimed artist. 

18092020 WIS blog Two Pandas

18092020 WIS blog Pandas Painting

In 1963, Wu Zuoren set out to change the face of China when he was presented with the opportunity to design postage stamps for the People’s Republic of China. Already well known for his ink wash paintings of giant pandas in their natural habitat and other animals such as yaks and camels, Wu Zuoren’s giant panda stamps first issued in 1963 formally established the giant panda as the emblem of the new China. 

18092020 WIS blog Stamps

Today, he is remembered as one of the few Chinese artists to achieve acclaim, both for his Chinese ink works and for his role in modernising the new face for the People’s Republic of China.

Imperial White Ink Stone - Royal Panda Collection

In Imperial Feng Shui, the Panda is the emblem of abundance, prosperity and vitality, while bamboo symbolises consistent growth and progression. 

Mixing modern techniques and the use of minimal pointillism to produce a vivid effect, Master David immortalised one of China’s most admired emblems, the giant panda, by depicting them on the Emperor grade white inkstone. Once again resulting in the seamless amalgamation of Imperial Feng Shui and Chinese art. 

The overall palette of black, white, and dark green represents Master David’s profound roots in Imperial Feng Shui, Eastern art and calligraphy. 

18092020 WIS blog National Panda

Pandas are the emblem of abundance, prosperity and vitality. For this collection, Master David depicted Pandas in their most natural setting, among the bamboo grove during spring, the season of new beginnings and opportunities.

The harmony between the lean and thick brushworks all over the Imperial White Ink Stone represents Master David’s appreciation of the balance created by the difference in thickness of brushstrokes. 

However, the traditional subject of pandas in tranquil bamboo forest in Eastern art, is infused with modernity and exoticism by the multi-faceted Imperial Feng Shui master under his unlimited use of bold intertwined horizontal and vertical brushstrokes and the depth of the Imperial White Ink Stone through the contrast of light and dark colors. 

18092020 WIS blog Royal Panda

In striking detail, the contrasting black and white markings showcases Master David’s sophisticated design and approach on negative spaces.

While retaining the colors of Eastern traditional ink painting, Master David infused Imperial Feng Shui principles, heralding a new era of Imperial Feng Shui art that inspires prosperity and success.

5 Imperial Feng Shui Tips When Buying A House

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 17 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 3mins

Whether you are a new home owner or an existing one, selecting a property with good Feng Shui is one of the most important decisions you will make. Living in a property with good Feng Shui enables us to achieve peak performance in our career, business and relationships. While the opposite can result in undesirable consequences that may affect your physical,mental and even financial well-being.

As Singapore’s leading Imperial Feng Shui master, Master David has been the trusted Feng Shui advisor to many successful clients who are at the forefront of their respective fields. 

In this article, we will share Master David’s Imperial Feng Shui checklist to select an auspicious property with good Feng Shui. 

1. Regular Land Shape (四点金)

The first step in identifying an auspicious property is to look at the floorplan of the land or house. Based on principles of Imperial landform, the ideal shape of a piece of land or floor plan is either a square or rectangle. The term “Four Point of Gold” (四点金) was coined to describe the ideal piece of land with regular shape.

16092020 HFS blog Tip 1

In ancient China, homes are usually built to adhere to a square layout. This is because the ‘wholeness’ of a house promotes the flow of Qi within, enhancing the wealth and luck of its occupants.

Unfortunately, modern architectural innovations and space constraints in cities often result in missing sectors that can negatively affect the occupants.

2. Incoming Water flow (逆水朝堂)

The second step in selecting an auspicious property is understanding the water flow within the location. As quoted from the Imperial Feng Shui classics “Mountain governs benefactors, while water governs wealth (山管人丁,水管财).” 

The study of Imperial landform places important emphasis on the position of the mountain and the water with respect to the residence. 

Based on the study of Imperial Landform, the direction of the road (virtual water) and rivers (physical water) should ideally be flowing towards your house. 

16092020 HFS blog Tip 2

This auspicious feature is known as incoming water flow 逆水朝堂.  

3. Embracing Water/Jade Belt (玉带环腰)

The third step in selecting an auspicious property is identifying the road surrounding the house. In ancient China, high-ranking government officials donned the jade belt, as a display of their nobility and social stature.

16092020 newest blog Tip 3

The term “Jade Belt” refers to a feature where the road surrounds the building, much like how the jade belt embraces the waist of the wealthy.

4. Bright Hall (名堂)

With the above two criteria, the fourth feature to look out for is known as ‘Bright Hall’, which refers to the open space in front of the house.

One of the golden verses in the classics of Imperial Landform states that “宅前无余地,子孙稀”. It suggests a correlation between the amount of space in front of a house and the number of descendants and offspring.

16092020 HFS blog Tip 4

With a spacious bright hall in front of your residence, it will usher in wealth and prosperity for generations to come.

5. Metal Mountain (金山)

The final step in selecting an auspicious house is identifying the Mountain landform. This is one of the most powerful Imperial landform features. 

16092020 HFS blog Tip 5

According to the study Imperial Landform, there are five elemental mountains, namely: Metal, Earth, Wood, Fire and Water. 

Metal mountain refers to a mountain with a round top. It is deemed as one of the most powerful wealth creation mountain features that can bring a tremendous amount of wealth and benefactor support.

16092020 blog round mountain

Earth mountain refers to a mountain with a flat top. It has similar features as metal mountain because in the study of five elements, earth produces metal. 

16092020 blog earth mountain

Wood mountain refers to a mountain with a conical top. In Chinese, it is known as 贪狼星 (Greedy Wolf Star). It is ideal for raising children with high scholastic achievements.

16092020 blog Mountain Shapes
Fire mountain refers to a mountain with a sharp top. It produces misfortunes and major illnesses for the occupants. In urban environments, fire mountain refers to buildings with sharp and pointed tips.

16092020 blog fire mountain
Water mountain refers to a mountain with a wavy top. It produces promiscuity and family disharmony.

16092020 blog water mountain

In ancient China, the rich and powerful are buried at the auspicious Feng Shui positions near Metal Mountain, Earth Mountain or Wood Mountain. However, it was often not practical to have the Chinese palace situated near mountains, which innovated the Imperial Feng Shui treasure known as the Qian Long Jadeite Mountain.

While it is also impossible to be surrounded by such auspicious landform features as we live in an urban city such as Singapore, Master David’s utmost dedication to his clients is reflected in the launch of Imperial Harvest Qian Long Jadeite Mountain. The Qian Long Jadeite Mountain is the result of 4 years of intensive research and development to ensure our clients enjoy the same quality of Imperial Feng Shui treasures that Emperor Qian Long once used.

Introduction to Imperial Feng Shui

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 16 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 3mins

Imperial Feng Shui is an exclusive art of Feng Shui reserved for the Chinese Royal Family. For centuries, this closely-guarded branch of Feng Shui has been highly favoured among the rich and powerful for its practicality and effectiveness. 

Unlike Classical Feng Shui which focuses on the prediction and forecast of one's destiny, Imperial Feng Shui focuses on helping individuals to design their own destiny by empowering them to be in a state of consistent good luck using the application of the finest Imperial Feng Shui treasures such as Jadeite, Agarwood and Sandalwood.

Introduction to Imperial Feng Shui

15092020 ql new

The Qian Long Emperor is one of the most prominent advocates of Imperial Feng Shui. He wisely recognised that the ability to change the future was superior to knowing the future. With the Emperor's patronage and initiation, Imperial Fengshui developed into a highly regarded class of Feng Shui reserved solely for him. 

During his reign, the Qing Dynasty enjoyed an era of abundance and prosperity. Ruling for 268 years (1644 - 1912), the Qing Dynasty is widely known as the longest ruling dynasty. 

To explain the intricate concept of Imperial Feng Shui, we will begin with the most fundamental concept in Imperial Feng Shui, the Origins of Ba Gua.

Origins of Ba Gua 

15092020 blog Ba Gua

In the beginning before the universe had taken its form, everything was vague and amorphous. Although life existed, it was unable to breed. In the study of I-Ching (易经), this phenomenon is called the Great Ultimate / the Great Beginning or Wu Ji 无极

Tai Ji (太极)

Over time, the universe began producing material forces. Forces which were clear and light drifted up, and became heaven. Those that were heavy and turgid, solidified to become earth.

15092020 1804 tai ji


The combined essences of heavens and earth is also known as Tai Ji, or the condition called ‘the oneness before duality’. 

Yin and Yang (阴阳)

All things and events are the result of Yin and Yang. Hence it can be said that all things and events are part of the Tai Ji.  In Tai Ji, the Yin and Yang were joined together to form a S-shaped jigsaw of black and white. 

15092020 new blog yin and yang

When the Yin substance is separated from the Yang substance, they create the primal energies of life enabling evolution to begin. This can be described with the analogy of how water interacts with oil;  when oil is mixed with water, there is a flux of continuous movement where oil and water are one, until it settles. Once settled, they separate one from the other thus representing Yang and Yin, forming two poles. 

In summary Tai Ji is a condition arising from Wu Ji and gave rise to Yin and Yang, which created the primal energies of life.

Four Phenomenon 

In the diagram of Yin and Yang, the segments are further divided into what is known as the Four Phenomenon. In the diagram - 

15092020 new blog yin pole

The Yin Pole is further divided into the Major Yin and Minor Yang

15092020 new blog yang pole

The Yang Pole is further divided into the Minor Yin and Major Yang

The Four Phenomenon are then further divided into the Ba Gua, which serves as the basis of Imperial Feng Shui.

Imperial Feng Shui

In the Qing dynasty, Imperial Feng Shui masters went through years of research and development to unlock and leverage on the powerful dominant forces of Yin Yang to create wealth, health and success for the Imperial family, altering their luck and forever changing their lives’ destiny. 

Each type of Yin and Yang serves a specific purpose, and Imperial Feng Shui masters discovered that the Four Phenomenon served as the basis of changing an individual’s luck.

They discovered the Heavenly Secrets that Jadeite, Agarwood and Sandalwood helped the Chinese royal family to unlock and achieve a consistent state of good luck.

Imperial Harvest-grade Jadeite pendants balances the major yin 太阴 - which enhances your personal luck.

They discovered that Imperial Harvest-grade Jadeite cabochons balance the minor yang 少阳 - which supercharges your wealth capacity and luck.

When it comes to selecting an office with good Feng Shui, it is important to pay attention to these three important tips

Tip 1: No missing sectors

No Missing Sectors

Tip 2: No backs should face the door

No Backs Should Face The Door

When one selects an auspicious position in the office, they should avoid having their back facing the door, otherwise it can cause you to experience backstab or malefactors at work.

The Legendary Designs of The Imperial White Ink Stone -  Part 1

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 11 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins 

Fine art is an important pillar of Chinese culture, of all the art forms borne out of this rich and multifaceted cultural landscape, Chinese painting and calligraphy are considered to be the finest. 

There are two broad categories of Chinese classical paintings; that of the scholar-officials and that of professional artists. The paintings of the literati or scholar-officials were often a reflection of their inner-thoughts, these paintings feature expressive brushwork, and are often complemented with an inscription.

Due to their influential position in society, literati paintings are highly revered and sought after by fine art collectors even in the modern day.

About Imperial White Ink Stone 

Imperial White Ink Stone is the emperor grade category of ink stones exclusively reserved for Chinese Emperors. White is the rarest colour found in the category of Duanxi Ink Stones as only 0.02% of the Ink Stones mined are white. 

Imperial White Ink Stone is traditionally used by Imperial Feng Shui masters to empower Chinese Emperors with noblemen, wealth and authority. 

As an avid enthusiast of fine arts and Imperial Feng Shui, Emperor Qian Long commissioned and designed a variety of Ink Stones with ancient and classical styles with references from previous dynasties and inscriptions of his poetry. 

To maintain the integrity of the precious ink stones, Imperial artisans applied the techniques of Chinese calligraphy and ink wash painting on ink stones using fine engraving methods, which became what is known as the Imperial standard for ink stones production.

Imperial Harvest’s Pursuit in Upholding the Same Traditions

Master David commissioned only the most experienced artisans to engrave his signature designs on the Imperial White Ink Stone using the Imperial standard. The designs are influenced by the paintings of famous Chinese artists and results in the perfect marriage between Chinese fine arts and Imperial Feng Shui heritage.  

It is a time-consuming process as it can take more than a month, from designing to carving the Imperial White Ink Stone. Despite the tedious process, Master David is committed to present only the finest Imperial Feng Shui treasures to the world. 

Imperial Harvest’s white ink stone collection represents the same heritage and traditions of the Imperial White Ink Stones in the Imperial Court, which projects the most potent Imperial Feng Shui energies.

Landscapes - Huang Binhong

hbh_portrait_1_new

Huang Binhong (黃賓虹) was a Chinese literati painter and art historian born in Jinhua, Zhejiang province in 1865. He is considered as one of the last innovators in the literati style of painting and is widely acclaimed for his freehand landscapes. 

Landscape is also known as Shan Shui (山水), where mountains, rivers and waterfalls are prominent in this art form.

Huang Binhong had exceptional skill in the manipulation of brush and ink as well as an understanding of positive and negative spaces that emphasised the abstract nature of brushwork and the internal beauty it created.

hbh_landscapes_2_new

In his fifties, he sought to learn from the works of ancient masters and in the next decade he travelled widely throughout China to admire and study the splendour of nature. It is widely believed that Huang’s unique style only crystallised in his seventies. His landscapes bear tribute to the landscapes of the Northern Song dynasty.

Advocating ‘learning from past masters’, as well as from nature, Huang Bin Hong’s artworks captured the spirit and essences of nature at its very best.

Imperial White Ink Stone - Royal Landscape Collection

iwis_royal_landscape_cover_page

Landscape is widely known to be the highest form of Chinese painting and the epitome of Imperial Feng Shui art. Drawing inspiration from the legendary landscape painter, Master David’s style of landscape painting is the achievement of dense and cohesive structures and a balance of tonal variations in the mountains and trees. 

Drawing references from Huang Binhong’s landscape paintings, the importance of the positive and negative space is replicated on the Imperial White Ink Stone. Precise and different angles of strokes were used in the paintings, portraying a painting of careful synthesis and sketch-like spontaneity, just as how Huang Binhong described paintings that played with dark and light shades - ‘the order of disorder’.

A Crisp Autumn in Streams and Mountains_upclose

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As leaves begin to fall from the trees, friends and families begin their journey to reunite before the yearly harvests. Berries emerge, embracing the autumnal air just as blooms entwine in the spring, as if nature begins to call out, and the trees can't help but become towering blossoms of flamed foliage, dancing down from the skies.

The Golden Empire depicts highland mountains in Northern China that are peaking out towards the skies, laid in a great line like the spine of the land, serving as the foundation for trees and shrubs, grass and ferns. Water from the heavens cascades down a series of rocky outcrops; a stream of slow-flowing liquid, descending gently, languid in pace.

The Eight Zodiac Guardians

Posted by Imperial Harvest on 05 September 2020

Estimated Reading Time: 5mins

The Chinese Zodiac

Originating from China, the Chinese zodiac is a classification tool based on the lunar calendar, assigning an animal and its reputed attributes to each year in a repeating 12-year cycle. 

This calendar can be traced back to the 14th century B.C. 

05092020 8zg 8zodiac_guardian_emperor

Legend has it that Emperor Huangdi, the first Chinese emperor, in 2637 B.C. invented the Chinese lunar calendar, which follows the cycles of the moon and paved the sequence of the Chinese zodiac animals.

Based on Chinese astrology, it was used as a method for counting years, months, days and hours in the Chinese imperial court and civil calendar. In its divination context, it is utilised to forecast one’s future and determine one’s character.

Eight Zodiac Guardians

The 12 Chinese Zodiac signs are associated with eight zodiac guardians. Each guardian serves as the protector for people born in that particular animal year.

05092020 8zg Group shot

The zodiac guardian blesses individuals with auspicious luck and empowers them to achieve breakthrough results in their career, business, investment, health and relationships.  

These are the eight zodiac guardians and their corresponding zodiac signs: 

  • Thousand Hands Guan Yin - Rat
  • Akasagarbha Bodhisattva - Ox & Tiger
  • Manjusri Bodhisattva- Rabbit 
  • Samantabhadra Bodhisattva- Dragon & Snake
  • Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva- Horse

Untold Secrets of Imperial Harvest Jadeite Beads

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins 

Imperial Jadeite Bead necklace and bracelet had been a firm favourite among Chinese Royal families. Many Chinese Emperors and Empresses are often depicted wearing Jadeite Beads necklaces and bracelets in various Chinese paintings. 

Imperial jade refers to the finest-quality jadeite that is almost transparent with a vibrant jadeite colour. The jadeite beads exhibit perfectly matching colour, combined with an outstanding translucency and excellent lustre.

As part of the royal family tradition, the appointed Imperial Feng Shui master would analyse the destiny charts of important Chinese Royal Family members before prescribing and blessing their favourable elemental jadeite pendant, rings or beads. 

A specially appointed Imperial Feng Shui master would then bless the royal family jadeite jewelleries at the Temple of Heaven (天坛) on specially chosen auspicious dates and times to empower the Chinese royal family with consistent state of good luck, wealth and success.

Five Wealth God Series - Tua Di Ya Pek

Estimated Reading Time: 2 mins

Tua Di Ya Pek is one of the most powerful indirect wealth god, known to bless individuals with auspicious indirect luck and is the top choice among funds managers, private equity traders and investors. 

04092020 TYDP blog 1

In this article, we share the legend of Tua Di Ya Pek and the inspiration behind Master David’s signature Fine Jadeite Tua Di Ya Pek.

Legend of Tua Di Ya Pek

04092020 TYDP blog 2

In ancient China, Di Ya Pek and Tua Ya Pek used to work as constables in a yamen (衙门)during their lives as humans. On one occasion, a convict they were escorting escaped during the journey. They decided to split up and search for the escaped convict and meet again later under a bridge at a certain time. 

However, Tua Ya Pek was delayed due to heavy rain so he did not reach the bridge in time. Di Ya Pek, who was on time, waited under the bridge. The heavy rain caused flooding in the area under the bridge. Di Ya Pek refused to leave because he wanted to keep his promise to his colleague, and eventually drowned. When Tua Ya Pek arrived, he was saddened to see that Di Ya Pek had drowned, so he committed suicide by hanging himself. The Jade Emperor was deeply impressed by their actions so he appointed them as deities of the Underworld.

In their new roles as deities of the Underworld, they escort spirits of the dead, whilst acting as fortune deities, rewarding devotees by blessing them with auspicious indirect luck to spot winning investments and trade opportunities that generate explosive returns, as well as occasionally blessing them with windfalls to further acquire more assets.

Fine Jadeite Tua Di Ya Pek

Master David drew inspiration from various chinese literatures and illustrations of Tua Di Ya Pek to portray the most powerful and auspicious manifestation of Tua Di Ya Pek to help Imperial Harvest clients achieve their wildest dreams and aspirations.
