Jade ferret is a fierce beast in the legend. There are different opinions about its origin. The ferret can swallow everything but never let it go, so it has the moral of eating the wealth of all sides. Chinese tradition has the custom of "ferret". Like dragons and lions, it has the function of driving away evil spirits, bringing joy and good luck.
In ancient books, it is a ferocious beast. The ferret feeds on wealth, and receives wealth from all sides.
Mink, also known as Tianlu, Jianxie and Baijie, has four names. It is a kind of God and animal in ancient Chinese mythology and legend. It is a dragon head, horse body and Lin foot. It looks like a lion. Its coat is gray and it can fly. The ferret is fierce and powerful. It is responsible for patrolling in the sky to prevent demons and plagues from disturbing the heavens.
In ancient times, people often used mink as the name of the army. Legend has it that the ferret violated the rule of heaven, and the Jade Emperor punished him to eat only from all sides, swallow everything but not pour it out, and collect treasures. He could only enter but not enter. After this allusion was spread, the ferret was regarded as an auspicious beast to attract wealth and treasure. This is why many Chinese wear marten jade products.
According to records, ferrets resemble lions and have wings. Ancient fabrics, flags, hooks, buttons and clocks are often decorated with ferrets to protect them from danger.
