The name of the lingzhi fungus has a two thousand-year-old history. The Old Chinese name 靈芝 was first recorded during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 9 AD). In the Chinese language, língzhī (灵芝) is a compound. It comprises líng (灵); spirit, spiritual; soul; miraculous; sacred; divine; mysterious; efficacious; effective and zhī (芝); plant of longevity.

In Chinese art, the lingzhi symbolizes great health and longevity, as depicted in the imperial Forbidden City and Summer Palace. It was a talisman for luck in the traditional culture of China, and the goddess of healing Guanyin is sometimes depicted holding a lingzhi mushroom.

It took eight master craftsmen with a combined production time of 12 weeks to complete the Orangutan.
