Ru Yi

Ru Yi is a wish fulfilling ornament in Taoism. Ruyi literally means as you wish in Chinese. A typical ruyi is composed of two parts: a head in the shape of cloud, heart, or a species of fungus (Linzhi, meaning magic mushroom), and a long handle in the shape of a flat S. Ruyi can be made of a variety of valuable materials, such as precious metal, jade, hardwood, semi-precious gems, ivory, coral, and so on. Wikipedia: Ru Yi
