Deer

The graceful and beautiful deer is not included in the Chinese zodiac but does feature in paintings. It symbolizes longevity and riches as deer were believed to live to a great age. Lù means ‘good fortune’ and ‘government salary’, and lù is also another word for ‘precious jade’. The god of longevity is often shown accompanied by deer; it was reputed to be able to locate the herbs of immortality.
