What is Okinawa Traditional Shisa
It is famous as a traditional Okinawa figure, but most people do not know much about Shisa in the first place. Is that a dog? Cat? Or. . . Seisa has the meaning as an amulet that pays the evil spirit that brings disaster to the village by the name of "the image of legendary beast of Okinawa", and there seem to be many people putting on the entrance of the house and the roof.
Etymology is said to be pronounced "Okinawa Narami" "Shinha" meaning lion in lions and Sanskrit. However, there seems to be various theories in its origin, such as Seisa's theory of "dog". When it becomes, it is meaningful as "amulet" and the fluffy "beast figure of legend of Okinawa" is nice laugh
In a word, there seems to be various kinds even if it calls Shisa, it seems that whether it is a male or a female, or Shisa who opened her mouth invites Fuku and Shisa who closes her mouth does not put any disaster into the house. . . There are also differences depending on the area, and the material is also diverse in the present age, there seem to be various things such as stone and pottery, plaster and concrete.
Well I think that "Shisa" as making memories of Okinawa trip is more casual and best to feel familiar with feeling about "Okinawa's cute figurine protecting home from disaster!" d (¯)
