This plaque invokes the Diety to bring stability and blessings to the food prepared at the stove. Measures 10.5" X 4.25". It is made of wood, painted red, with the calligraphy in gold leaf. Commonly found in the Chinese kitchen, it is an invocation to the Kitchen God to stabilize and bless the stove. It is important to burn a stick of incense in front of this plaque as an offering to the Kitchen God. As it is increasingly important to be aware of preparing foods in a safe and healthy manner, this appeal is not only for blessing the stove, but for protection so that no foods are prepared which may cause illness.
