Cultural and Creative Product Protection of Safety and Healthy – Hundred-family lock

 

"Bai-Jia lock" or "Hundred-family lock" is a civil art handicraft made with gold, silver, or bronze. It is said the family with a newborn baby raised the money from one hundred families in the neighborhood to hire a locksmith to make the lock. It means that this lock has the power from a hundred families to protect the baby and is usually of pillar shape with the lock-body. It is hung in the house or on the neck of the baby to keep away the disaster and pray for the baby's longevity. This lock adds a puzzle to increase the joy and difficulty in the opening process.
