Chinese Pixiu, (Chinese: 貔貅 píxiū; Wade–Giles: P’i-hsiu) is a Chinese mythical hybrid creature, commonly, but incorrectly referred to in the West by the Greek word “chimera”, is considered to be a very powerful protector to practitioners of Feng Shui 風水. Pixiu has a head of a Chinese dragon, body of a lion and with a pair of feathered wings. It resembles a strong, winged lion. Pixiu is an earth and sea variation, particularly an influential and auspicious creature for wealth. It is said to have a voracious appetite towards only gold, silver and jewels. Therefore, traditionally to the Chinese, Pixiu has always been regarded as an auspicious creature that possessed mystical power capable of drawing Cai Qi (財氣 wealth) from all directions. Because of this, according to Chinese zodiac, it is especially helpful for those who are going through a bad year.
