Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Today is Lunar or Chinese New Year!

I decided to make the Seven Gods of Fortune, commonly referred to in English as the Seven Lucky Gods, refer to the seven gods of good fortune in Japanese mythology and folklore.

The Seven Gods are often depicted on their ship, the Takarabune, or "Treasure Ship." The tradition holds that the seven gods will arrive in town on the New Year and distribute fantastic gifts to worthy people.

Sometimes I make things just for my own enjoyment. I don't ever expect this set to sell, but I had so much fun making this! Each little god is fully removable from the boat and uniquely adorned.
