Peter and I bought these Loving Couple in Divisoria in the Philippines because they looked so cute. We just couldn’t resist.
By the way, Feng Shui object d’art is big business in the Philippines.
Apparently, these figurines are of a newly married couple.
Aside from Mandarin ducks figurines, which I think is a slightly more popular choice, the Loving Couple is also presented to a newly married couple a symbol of true love.
Traditionally the Chinese believe that if put these wedding couple in a room where you are mostly with your other half, in the bedroom, sitting room, kitchen or even in the dining room, your personal relationship luck will be activated and be a longlasting love.
I recently watched a drama called The Story of Ming Lan, where the second male lead gave the female figurine to Ming Lan to keep, while he kept the male one for himself.
Well probably because he separated them, he did not get to keep Ming Lan in the end.
