Fuk Luk Sau: Fu Xing

Fu Xing is a star that the ancient Chinese thought was in charge of agriculture in China. Today, Fu Xing is generally shown as a court official with a characteristically "winged" hat, and often with a scepter in his hand. But he looked enormously different in an age-old drawing depicting 28 gods in early Tang dynasty (618-907 AD), where, with a tiger face and leopard eyes, sitting on a huge wild boar, he ranked as the head of the gods. In the Tang Dynasty, Fu Xing (also called Yang Cheng) became a governor of Dazhou in Hunan of Central China. The emperor of his day found midgets amusing, and often conscripted them from Dazhou. When governor Yang learned that the midgets were unhappy to be taken away from their families, he stood up to the emperor and abolished the practice. Thus Yang became immortalized as one who brings blessings and happiness.
