First used in Feng Shui nearly one thousand years ago to remedy toxic Shar Qi, the bagua is considered a powerful protective tool. Shar Qi is known as one of the most malignant kinds of energy in Feng Shui, threatening to one’s health and wellbeing. It is created by "Poison arrows" generated from sharp corners, streets, vertical structures and public or municipal facilities pointed at or directly adjacent to the entrance of your home or workplace. This unique Feng Shui bagua has the sacred eight trigrams of the I’Ching inscribed around a convex mirror and features the image of the Door God riding a lion to neutralize negative forces and to counter any Shar Qi energy that may be affecting your residence. Install the bagua over your main entrance, never display it indoors. It is made of peach wood, which is considered to have spiritual properties for driving away evil spirts.
