I was cleaning my room and found this pyramid thing with what I would guess a chinese character (because I'm chinese). Tried to look it up but couldn't find anything. Chinese character

It is a graphic that combined all the characters in the phrase 招財進寶 (attract wealth and obtain treasure)

It is not a single word because you have to read it as 招財進寶 /zhāo cái jìn bǎo/
