Gao-Sheng / ladder

Gao-Sheng
Gao-Sheng

In the East countries, bamboo symbolizes good luck. The appearance of the ladder comes from bamboo - the plant grows richly in subtropics area, such as Taiwan. Although the ladder is a necessity for every family, we rarely use it. We usually place the ladder in the storage rather than the living room. Combining with lamp can make it in common use. “Gao-Sheng” is a practical mascot . Climbing the ladder corresponds to the East auspicious words "Bu Bu Gao Sheng", that means our work will run smoothly. The light at the top of the ladder represents the success through our efforts. It can be placed in anywhere of the house, but not in the storage.
