the picture above need to be flipped horizontally to view.

Please the Picture as marked area after flip it horizontally.

the RED 'A' Area is the Chinese word '招' , which here means 'get', 'welcome'

the BLUE 'B' Area is the Chinese word '财' , which is 'welfare', 'Money'...

(This is the first.part explanation . of the picture.)

It's actually not a real character, it's several characters with auspicious meanings merged to one character. Sissi mentions the four characters: 招财进宝, meaning something like 'wealth is welcome, treasures come in'. I've seen it as a Chinese new year wish, calligraphed on red paper.
