In Europe, North America and Asia, the owl is a "lucky bird" that brings happiness as a god of wisdom and of longevity.
The owl is thought of as a messenger of God, a symbol of wisdom and a bird that has spiritual power. It is a very auspicious bird that brings longevity, the god of learning, safety within the home, a turnaround of fate, rising family fortunes and a lack of hardships. Also, as it can turn its neck 180 degrees, it is related to foresight and business prosperity.
In Japanese the word owl is related to "no hardships", "perpetual youth" "inviting luck" "pearl of wisdom" and "good luck".

[Handling Precautions]
*Decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles etc: In places with bad stability,​ safely take proper care when setting and take measures to prevent falling.
*When storing,​ lightly wipe dry with a soft cloth to remove dirt and carefully store,​ especially for ornaments that use gold and silver.
*The bases of Kutani ware items are not coated with glaze. Minimal polishing has been performed but scratches may occur in places that come into direct contact with it. Take care when using on soft or easily damaged surfaces such as alcoves ("Toko-no-ma"),​ flower tables,​ shelves,​ tables and lacquer-finished surfaces,​ and be sure to lay something underneath.
*Vases,​ decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles and other decorative items: In respects to aesthetics,​ finely colored decorative paint may be used. Refrain from using as tableware.
*For vases,​ especially ceramics (pottery): Should sealing treatment be insufficient,​ water may ooze out on rare occasions. Should water leaking occur,​ please contact the customer center.
*Using abrasive sponges,​ nylon or metallic scourers,​ cleansers etc may cause the gold,​ silver,​ paint or adhesive to peel off and damage the surface,​ so refrain from using.
*Do not use for anything other than its intended purpose.
*As each item is hand-made one-by-one,​ the color,​ pattern & shape may differ slightly from the photos.
