GONG DE TIAN

Chinese Good Luck Goddess

Also known as Gongdetian, Kung-Te-T'ien

Heavenly Goddess of Luck

She is a Chinese manifestation of the Hindu deity Lakshmi via the amazing power of Buddhist transmogrification. She may also have teleported to Japan under the name Kichijoten.

Her Chinese name Gong De Tian means ‘Heavenly Virtue’ and she is very willing to reward the virtuous. She has a magic pearl which grants wishes and — if her encouraging hand gesture is anything to go by — she is currently taking requests.

Go on, be bold and ask her for something.
