This is a very old bronze figure (c. 17th C.) of Liu Haichan and his 3-legged money toad, probably used as a Feng Shui statue. The odd-looking creature on the man’s shoulder is known as Jin Chan, the Golden Toad, the Money Frog, which is said to bring luck and is a famous Feng Shui charm.This mythical creature is said to appear during the full moon, near houses or businesses that will soon receive good news understood to be wealth-related. According to Feng Shui beliefs, Jin Chan helps attract and protect wealth, and guards against bad luck.
Because it symbolizes the flow of money, Feng Shui lore insists that a Jin Chan statue should not be positioned facing the main door ie. “outward”. It also “should never be kept in the bathroom, bedroom, dining room or kitchen”.
