Lucky charm for home decoration with rice bushel/ basket, a bag full of money and Chinese knots a symbol to ward off evil spirits, enhancing luck. The "mystic knot" pattern with its seemingly endless and repetitive pattern evokes one of the fundamental truths of Buddhism and the Theory of the Five Elements, the cyclical change of all things. In Feng Shui, ‘endless knots’ symbolise a long life without setbacks; market scene, China Town, Bangkok
