The Immortals are a group of powerful beings in Chinese mythology. Most of them are said to have been born in the Tang or Song Dynasty, and remain popular fixtures in Chinese culture (art, literature, etc). Each other them had powers or abilities that could give life or destroy evil. They were especially revered by the Taoists. In total, there are eight immortals. Fuk, Luk and Sau are the most auspicious trinity of gods/deities in Chinese history and represent prosperity, authority and longevity. Fuk is the deity of wealth and prosperity, Luk symbolizes power and authority, and Sau symbolizes longevity. They are usually represented together and are known to attract health, wealth and prosperity to those who keep them and also to the environment in which idols of them are placed.
