Zhang Guo Lao ~ Immortal of LuckZhang Guo Lao is one of the famed Eight Immortals and one of the most eccentric deities around. With his tube of oracle-like phoenix feathers, he is famed for ushering in luck and compassion from those around you that will come through the oddest of ways that borderline on comedy!
Though his official title is the Master Visage of Profoundness, many loved him for his known sense of humor and quirkiness. As mentioned earlier, Zhang Guo Lao is one of the most eccentric deities around which can be seen clearly from the style of Kung Fu dedicated to him. Amidst all this humor, he was also a master of Taoist breathing regulation exercises in which he could go on without food for days.
Upon his death, when his followers went to his burial site much later to pay their respects, they found his tomb empty. As time passed by, many villagers continued to see him wandering the country side helping out people or even visting them in dreams giving them insights on what the fates my bring them, giving the person a chance to change his path.
Made of bronze. He is one of the few deities where it is actually ok to place him in your bedroom which is said to provide you with prophetic dreams and insights as to what is to come.
