Did you know that you should never bring an old broom into a new house? Why is a pineapple a symbol of welcome? Should you hang a horseshoe upward or downward pointing. Can painting your porch ceiling blue keep away ghosts and spiders?
This print of an original gouache painting on wood shows a tidy little house with a Japanese "Beckoning Cat" (considered a wise and lucky spirit,) on the porch, and a hound in the yard (Celtic symbols of courage, extreme loyalty and honor.)
The border has 18, silver images for good luck for the home. These include bread, (which ensures that a house may never know hunger,) salt, (which both wards off evil and brings out the flavor in life,) and an acorn, (a Norse symbol of luck and prosperity.)
The print image is 5' x 10' and floats on an 11 x 14 piece of Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Matte paper. Each print in this 300 print edition will come numbered and signed and can be personalized to someone special. It is sized to fit, without a mat, into a standard 11 x 14 frame.
