All the animals and items in this collection are symbols of good luck in one or more traditions or cultures. (You can find all the products below the explanation :-D)
Some, like the four leaf clover or the horseshoe are well-known symbols of luck, but what about the animals?
Butterfly: a butterfly alighting on you was a sign of good luck in most cultures around the world.
Goldfish: The gold fish brings good luck in the form of tranquility, wisdom and long life. It is one among the eight sacred symbols of the Buddha where they represent fertility, abundance and harmony with the flow of life. Ancient Greeks believed goldfish enhanced good luck in marriage and relationships. In ancient Egypt goldfish were kept in the house as a lucky omen for the family and helped cheer up domestic situations.
Bat: It's a Chinese good luck symbol. In China, the bat symbolizes long, happy life.
Bear: The bear was considered extremely lucky by small North American Native Indian tribes, ancient Siberian clans, and ancient migrants around Alaska. The bear was thought to have supernatural powers because of its miraculous ability to sustain itself (and its large mass, plus give birth) during the long winter months.
Beetle: The Egyptian scarab specifically represents luck in the form of solar power. Ancient Egyptians had scarab amulets, swivel rings, impression seals, and more to protect them in this world and the afterlife.
Deer: Known for its endurance, grace, and long life, the deer is another Chinese symbol for luck and longevity.
Elephant: The origin of its role as a token of good luck can be traced back to Hinduism. In Indian culture, the elephant is viewed as sacred and must always be treated with reverence.
Frog: In many ancient cultures, the frog is associated with rain. Why? Because successful agriculture depends on rain to make crops grow. And so, frogs -that seem to come to life after a rainfall- are among the list of good luck symbols.
Lizard: Because they are primarily nocturnal, many of our ancestors felt the lizard was good luck in protection from the unseen things in life. This also makes the lizard a lucky symbol for vision (both physical and psychic).
Pig: Doesn't seem a likely animal for good luck symbols, does it. Nevertheless, the Chinese and Irish both craft lucky charms from the images of pigs. They are also, alongside the four leaf clover, a symbol of good luck in Germany.
Rabbit: They're considered extremely auspicious in matters of childbirth and fertility. Ever wondered about the Easter bunny?
Spiders: spiders are good luck symbols to many cultures. In fact, spiders are attributed to saving the life of Christ as an infant. (Really, Google it!)
Horse: The Dala horse, referred to as Dalahäst in Swedish, is short for Dalecarlian horse. These wooden horses were originally plain and unpainted, but today they are most commonly painted bright red with a harness painted in white, green, yellow, and blue. At some point during their rise to popularity, they came to stand for good luck.
Ladybug: Sometimes, the ladybug is linked directly to God – in Irish and Polish, the names translate to “God’s little cow,” and in Dutch it means “little animal of our Good Lord.” In Hebrew and Yiddish, the names mean “Moses’s little cow” or “little horse,” and it is sometimes called the “little Messiah.” In countries like Russia, Turkey, and Italy, just the appearance of a ladybug is considered good luck.
Dragon: the Chinese dragon is a spiritual being that represents prosperity, strength, and good luck
