The Collection: General Guan Gong
In the epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Guan Yu is praised for "Divine strength with mighty power, scholarly bearing with cultured intellect."
Our design pays homage to the classic image of Guan Yu, also known as Guan Gong (Lord Guan). Clad in a green robe over body armor, he wields the Green Dragon Crescent Moon Blade in his right hand while gracefully holding his beard in the left. Guan Yu symbolizes justice, courage, and serves as the embodiment of wealth and protector of homes.
The intricate craftsmanship features a low-relief cloud dragon motif and armor pattern, capturing Guan Yu's esteemed position as the ultimate general. Elaborate floral designs adorn his attire, representing his intellectual and physical prowess.
With intricate craftsmanship, Guan Yu's image showcases loyalty (忠) and righteousness (義), embodying Confucian virtues. He is revered as the scholarly martial deity of wealth.
