A creature of the night, the wise owl on these chopsticks looks simply mystical among a cluster of stars. In Japanese culture, the owl, or “fukurou,” is believed to bring good fortune and prevent pain and suffering. In fact, the owl is an ancient talisman of good luck throughout Asian culture. So much so that a popular Japanese animation character was named after it. This character, “Fukurou,” looks like an owl, too. He has a round face and can only talk when the zipper on his mouth is unzipped. Even Japanese animation is inspired by the owl, known to be a silent nocturnal creature of the forest.
For those who enjoy a little bit of fantasy over Japanese animation, these Owl with Stars chopsticks are a great fit for your personality. Use them for late evening meals, letting the night theme inspire you. Or, use them for a fun party with the kids, who always enjoy a little bit of cartoon fantasy.
The black lacquer coating makes the chopsticks strong and durable, and the dark background gives them the impression of embodying a fantastic, star filled night. Comes individually packaged in a plastic wrap. Made of wood. Made in Japan. (Discontinued, please see our other Animal, Bird & Insect Chopsticks
