Fu: A popular symbol displayed on doorways during Chinese New Year. It can be translated as good fortune, prosperity, or fulfillment. The custom of displaying the symbol during New Year started in 256BCE during the Zhou Dynasty. Placing the symbol at your doorway kept poverty away from your home.
The character is painted in running script style, then printed on acid-free 100% cotton archival paper. The uniquely matted frame focuses attention on the character and makes a simple, yet beautiful display on a desk, shelf, or table.
