Just right for a good luck charm, the owl, or "fukurou" in Japanese, is believed to bring good fortune. Other variations of the word "fukurou" translate to "bring good fortune" and "prevent pain and suffering". No wonder the owl is used as a talisman throughout Asian culture. This charm is a symbol of good luck and enduring strength.
Another, quite different use of the word "fukurou" is that of a popular Japanese animation character, whose round face resembles the body of an owl. This fun and playful character has a zipper for a mouth, and must open the zipper each time he speaks. Even Japanese animation is inspired by the owl, known to be a silent nocturnal creature of the forest.
In Western tradition, the owl is associated with wisdom. Whatever you believe in, you can't go wrong with this lovely charm of a lucky white owl with yellow feet and brown nose. A pink flower with five sparkles accentuates the front of the plastic charm, which dangles from an orange cloth ribbon. The texture of the charm is smooth, with little bumps where the nose, eyebrows, ears, feet, and wings are.
Use it for your purse, cell phone, school bag, compact, or more. Give the charm away as a delightful gift for a young friend. Comes in a plastic package with a paper backing. Made in Japan. (Discontinued, 2 avaiable only)
