The Pixiu is depicted as a mythical creature with the head of a dragon, body of a horse, claws of a lion, and the horn of a deer. It symbolizes protection over vast wealth. In Chinese lore, the Pixiu was believed to eat all gold, silver, and treasures that it can find. When the Jade Emperor decided to seal its anus, all the treasures were locked inside its body. This led to some beliefs that the Pixiu won’t allow wealth to leave one’s home.
