MEANING OF CHICKEN
TRADITIONALLY, IN KOREA, A PAINTING OR DOLL OF CHICKENS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AS A GIFT WISHING FOR SOCIAL SUCCESS AND A CHARM PREVENTING UNFORTUNATE EVENTS.
From the past, chickens have been regarded as 'the first animal to announce the dawn' and as a watchman to signal the beginning of the day. Chickens chase away darkness and evil with their cry and bring light. Chickens were also used as auspicious symbols at traditional Korean weddings and funerals, and often appear in folk paintings and folktales. So it is traditionally said that chicken sculptures and paintings were given as gifts to someone else's home
on New Year's Day.
The Moon and Chickens vases are living objects where you can enjoy humorous expressions and playful movements of the chickens. The vases are hand painted and come in a variety of sizes and forms, allowing you to place one or more of them together to make your space even more unique.
