Pi Yao

The myth of Pi Yao tells that the creature violated a law of heaven, so the Jade Emperor punished it by restricting Pi Yao's diet to gold, and preventing the creature from defecating by sealing its anus. Thus, Pi Yao can only absorb gold, but cannot expel it. This is the origin of Pi Yao's status as a symbol of the acquisition and preservation of wealth.

The Pi Yao is considered to be an infinite, unending auspicious creature of heaven which brings forth fortune and protection. Though many variations of this creature exists, the most common depiction is of it having a dragon's head, wings, body of dog, scales of a dragon and hooves of a horse. It is also linked with the appeasement of the Grand Duke Jupiter (Tai Sui).
