Fukuro and Dharma

I received these 2 cute ornaments from a good friend who bought it when he was in Japan. 2 very meaningful ornaments ... meet Fukuro and Dharma
Fukuro and Dharma
Fukuro : Happiness and Prosperity
Fukuro ( Owl ) is pronounced as the luck same as "no trouble" or "good come soon" in Japanese. It is a good luck article for bring good (business) fortune. The Owl lives at night so it is believed to bring good luck for students when studying during the late hours of the night.

Dharma Doll : Victory and Prosperity
A Dharma Doll is known as an indomitable spirit. It is round at the bottom and it will automatically regain its balance after being tipped over. So it is popular as a symbol which does not go bankrupt. It brings good luck in business and for school exams.
