ref:93877 - Lucky Carp - This tile could be seen as a meeting of East and West. In Chinese culture, statues and pictures of the koi or carp fish are thought to bring good fortune: wealth, prosperity and luck to the home or business. In Japan, koi means love or affection and so is a symbol of love and friendship. The classical Roman poet Horace wrote in his lyric poem the famous phrase Carpe Diem. This phrase is usually translated as seize the day and has been absorbed into our everyday language. Measures: 4x4".
ref:93878 - Breton Prayer - The Breton fisherman's prayer has turned up in various forms in many parts of the world and this particular version comes from Brittany in Northern France. This decorative tile shows a small fishing boat alone in the middle of the deep sea: seagulls fly beside awaiting the catch. The prayer Dear Lord be good to me the sea is so large and our boat is so small expresses the thoughts of lonely sailors out at sea, but perhaps also speaks for all of us when faced with the many problems of our lives. An unusual gift for fishermen, sailors or anyone connected to the sea. Measures: 4x4".
